Can I see some crazy Drivetrain swaps?!

Recommended Posts

Not the craysiest swap, consider it is a euro. But from a 1.7, to a 5.6 liter, it was a some surgery that was needed. The kit is the old Heller/Airfix, and the engine is from Tamiyas 560 SEC. Sorry for not having a decent picture with out the hood off.

I saw a Honda four in a A further up. I put a Quad Four in a '25 Roadster.

I project in the planning. It seems as it will work. Ferrari Boxer 12 in AirTrax VW T3.

I don't have any pictures yet, but how about a Porsche Carrera V-10 and a GM Auto in a '49 Mercury custom?

My current project is a Revell '40 Ford coupe mounted on a Wagon Rod chassis with a Corvette independent rear suspension grafted in along with a Nissan Skyline turbo inline 6 engine.It's gonna be a drift car. :wacko:

Then I'll take the ZR1 engine from the Wagon Rod and stuff it into the Skyline(or should I use the flathead from the '40 Ford? :wacko: :wacko:)
