This has got to be a first for WTF Friday; a mid engine car that’s been created by simply moving the motor from under the hood to behind the front seats.
Built by a Denver based ’master Saab mechanic’ this 900 appears to have no other visible modifications outside of reverse mounted wheels, a makeshift firewall, and a vent added to the roof.
Why is not listed in the ad, but one could argue that a serious advantage to this ‘conversion’ is that it’s easier to access through the hatch than the clamshell hood.
Two grand gets you this gem on the Colorado Springs Craigslist. I wonder how easy, or difficult, it would be to register?
Bonus: On the topic of moving motors round I found this s10 awhile back but couldn’t find any more photos so I might as well post it today in hopes of more info. It’s got no motor under the hood but one curiously located between the cab and bed.
I’ll be at Meeting of The Mazda’s Sunday but there are a few other events also. Info below:
Still looking for first hand accounts of this one running….anyone?
