You know it’s going to be an interesting car when the listing starts with “This is a toy.”

Essentially, this is an NB Miata chassis and drivetrain wearing the skin of a British Ford Squire–with a turbocharger added in for good measure.

Modifications include forged rods, 700cc DeatschWerks injectors, a Monster Miata clutch and a MegaSquirt system.

Located in Hollister, California, this 1955 Ford Squire Wagon is listed at $10,000.

That's near me. Looks like trouble. Trouble spelled a-w-e-s-o-m-e.

That's exactly the kind of appealing nonsense I love.......power....handling....patina....and just completely different.

This reminds me of the English fellow who put a Ford 100E body on a Miata. He did an excellent job , complete with lots of videos. Look for "Urchfab" on YouTube.1959 Ford Prefect 100E with a MX-5 Chassis at the Track
