Default Rear engine PT Cruiser

A 2001 PT with a 1999 300M 3.5 engine and transmission professionally installed in the rear of the vehicle.

Listed on e-Bay today..

Why? Eliminates all of the cargo area and rear passenger seating.

I don't think he was thinking about passengers when he started his project!

It says it's not a hack job, but it looks like somethin out of Monster Garage. All they have done is cut a big hole in the floor used some square tubing it brace it, and dropped the engine in.

I'm quite sure it would haul arse, but reliabilty would be a big factor.

"professionally installed" is not the phrase I'd use for it. [:I]

Obviously not something to go for groceries in!!![)] Maybe hauling a$$ is what it is designed for. [)]

MY GOD!!!! What have they done????

If that was a PRO installation... What I found even more amusing was the Transmition linkage wire, It looks like it is just laying there... I guess people will die from gas poisoning and there will be a little bit of road and engine noise in the passenger compartment... AC is not even an option...

The list goes on and on and on....

It's odd this came up. I was hauling a 4.6L Rover Aluminum V8 in the back of my PT Cruiser today. It made me think about the "Little Red Wagon", that awsome wheel standing Dodge. So today I'm musing about a rear engined, wheel standing, PT Crusier, then I get home and see this message. I have too many projects or I'd consider the eBay car....

It WOULD make an "interesting" start for a "Hemi Under Glass" type project!
