Default Return to the fold...

Hello, all... just picked up a 2006 GT Vert for a song! I have been messing around with Geo Tracker 4x4's for a while and my A.D.D. self was wanting to take a PT Convertible and put it on top of a 4x4 drivetrain from another vehicle. Now that I found this one for $1600, it just seems way too nice cut up. It's a GT, with 6 disc, new tires, 85K miles, and everything seems to work. The ignition has just a little key slack but I've read online that this may be a pretty easy repair.

Its been a while, but I had a 2001 PT that I bought in early 2000.

Here's the old original from the year 2000, I had it a mere two weeks and was rear ending while sitting at a stop light. The accident paid for the front and rear fascias from PTeazer. Back then, it really got a lot of looks!

Welcome back!

Were you looking for a 4x4 or AWD? It might not be that difficult to adapt one of the earlier AWD auto trans and rears to fit. Track width might be the biggest problem. A bunch of the Caravans and Town & Countrys came with AWD.

I guess you're better off putting the body on another platform if you are looking for something like this:

FK5 the picture you posted is one of our PT Cruiser club members.
I know what it took to create it and it was NOT for the faint of heart or inexperienced !!! He had a few, shall we say, weird/complex projects that he has finished over a 20-30 year time spam.
