    Saw this while lurking on another board. Supposedly it's in Oregon. Any ideas on what it is?

    Thanks

    It's down in Vintage section also. Wayne says 250GTE.

    What's left of one, anyway.

    Don't get too close to it. You may catch a disease.

    It almost looks like a brutally butchered 330 GTC except the side gills look more like a 62 250 GTO or a 67 275 GTB/4 . I honestly have no idea what it is though.

    Clearly a 250 GTE or perhaps even a 330 America. Such a shame these things could happen to a proud Italian automobile....
    I think the entire nose of the car is made by some former owner, I can´t relate the shape of it to any other car.

    Looks like a lot of bondo on the fenders to make the flare.

    What a shame - to defame and bastardize such a great car. You gotta ask yourself, what the heck were they thinking?! But, if the engine and mechanicals are still intact, the car could become a good donor car for a 250 project.

    The front light buckets look to be MGB.

    It needs a proper burial. I think it has a Chevy engine in it
