Just spotted this... of interest to anyone?
I'm guessing it's from a FWD?

worth every penny asked, the 1500 engine and gearboxes are very difficult to source.

relisted now at £99. I'm really surprised no one bought it as the 1500 engine and boxes are very rare (yes I know the car is as well) and there are usually people asking after them.

It's an urban legend! The problem with it is in the extremely low final drive ratio, either matching it for the rear diff, or finding something taller to do duty at both ends! But it worked well enough on the famous 1300 4WD rallycross car!
