rear engine

Post by floppyballs on Mon Jun 14, 2010 4:12 am

after going to wintersun i woke up this morning thinking it would be a little different to build a rear engine/ mid engine
hot rod. maybe small block, porsche trans axle spun end for end and upsidedown and some weird IRS setup.

my question is how far can you go before it it not called a hot rod for rego. im not a memember of the ASRF but think someone might know.
i think it can be done a an individually constructed vehicle but that costs $$$$$$$
cheers floppy

What state you in? That's the first question Wink (and geographically, not level of intoxication!). Also depends if you're going for full rego or club rego too. If you're fair dinkum you're gonna need a nice engineer too!

Heres some pics to get your dreams runnin

To make your hotrod rego idea feasible i believe you need to base your rear engine concept idea's around a set of pre-1948 chassis rails.

Theres a neat early ford improved A 30-31 P.U. that is pretty lrighteous in black with flames in the states it uses a V dub mill and transaxle, then theres a few with mid-mounted wrx suburu setups around but i can't remember the site i viewed em on, either way expect to $pend $$.

Kent Fuller built the Volksrod T-Buckets in the early 70's then he sold those rights to Andy Brizio who after building a number of units 20-50 sold all the tooling to Speedy Bill at Speedway Motors who didn't sell all that many before ceasing production.
