I'm a fan of more modern engines in older car's, it's nice being all nostalgic but i don't want to be a mobile chicane with scary breaks to boot, a modern day take on a hot rod (ish) for the road,
It will certainly put a smile on your face!

Ended up undoing all mounts, lifting up the old girl with a forklift, and pulling everything out from underneath.

This is going to be using very similar motive power..........Golf engine, gearbox, steering, brakes and suspension being mounted in a subframe, and being bolted to the Peugeot chassis legs [Oh, if only it were that easy......]

How on earth do you fit FWD Golf mechanicals to a 1950s RWD car?

I get that you can change the engine comparatively easier with the right conversion gubbins on the gearbox, as thousands of Zetec/Mazda engined Escorts/Anglias/Cortinas have proved, but genuinely puzzled as to the rest.

Blimey, survives ~60 years unmolested then gets gas-axed into a horrific-sounding FWD golf TDi hybrid by an 'enthusiast'. Just why? Why not do your errands in the Golf and appreciate the real-life history contained in the Peugeot? You're going to have to chop those chassis legs and inner wings clean off to get a transverse engine and box under the bonnet.

 

'Your ride, your way' and all that bollocks but this seems a pretty open-and-shut case of misguided destruction of a beautiful thing.

a] It's not particularly beautiful

b] I refer you to Mr Tickman's post above

c] I offered it for sale on various forums in standard form, no-one was interested

d] It's not a particularly pleasant drive in standard form

e] It was about 6 months away from disintegrating completely, due to the attentions of a previous "enthusiasts" attempt at welding

f] I'm sick of the "you're butchering a lovely old car" brigade tutting away in the background, demanding that things "should be left standard", and let their own "classics" [i.e this one] get to a state where it needed a large chunk of my hard earned dosh to stop it ending up being cubed

Whatever chief, its your car, you're entitled to turn it into something shit if you want, or even wang it round the oval if thats your thing.

 

for c), you must have been asking too much eh. e) and f) are bollocks, don't tell me chopping it up and converting it into half a golf diesel is the only way to 'save' this car from the crusher. £20 says it will be a lot closer to the crusher when this job is complete

I know that some of you prefer a standard vehicle, and I get that................but no-one stepped up to the plate when it was for sale in standard form, and 62 b.h.p, and possibly the nastiest column change I've ever encountered meant that if it was going to be saved, it wasn't going to be standard......why f.w.d Golf ? Because I just happened to have access to one that was a rear ended right off, and I fancied the engineering challenge.

 

 

Oh and not Golf diesel..........1.8 turbo petrol.

 

Ref Mr Bollox wager....I'll triple this, and donate it to a worthy Autoshite cause if this isn't finished by the end of May.

in my opinion, He has had a shitload of work done to the shell to make it solid.

He's fitting a well known and well regarded engine to a solid car to make something he fancies driving.

If you put a modern engine in your Horsebox, I would completely understand, especially after you having done a similar load of work to your Horsebox.

There's no harm in having something that looks good, is unusual and is practical (for the owners needs/desires).

After all, better it gets work done, and to a good standard, than not. Much like your sterling Rover K series saving and P11 sill welding escapades.

I must admit I am suprised that it is being converted now since the mods will basically make it no longer a historic vehicle and it will lose the mot exemption and probably end up on a Q plate. Part of the allure of old cars is how shit they are to drive. The biggest problem the 403 had going for it was being French as French classics are pretty much worthless but still cost a fortune to restore.

Oh do fuck off...............so much for Autoshite being a "broad church"...................and as for my previous projects.......both got finished, but not by me, due to a combination of factors, mostly health related, which is why I've had to farm out most of the work on this.

Bodily, this is going to be pretty much stock, bar a slightly lower ride height, and a nice paint job.......but it seems that that some on here can alter their cars without getting flamed for it, some can't.

And on that note......I'm out.

What a whining bunch of old women.

If someone else wanted to save/preserve/maintain such an allegedly significant piece of automotive history they could have after colc spent all the money having it welded to ensure bit didn't crumble into the dirt.

You bought it, you're paying for it, you're gonna be driving it. Do whatever you want with it. Whatever you did some penniless hand wringer would find something to moan about anyway.

I agree, if any of the handwringers are that bothered they should have bought it when it was offered for sale, it's only an old Peugeot that there are plenty of surviving examples of around the world, it looks like a fun project.

Perhaps if the wording of the reason behind the conversion had been different the reaction would be different?
If colc had said " I really like driving this car but ithe engine is worn out,spares are scarce and I feel a hazard on the road,I've got a golf engine that I'm going to fit in so I can use it everyday" people might have reacted differently? I haven't seen anyone moaning about vulg fitting cake tins to the back of his Princess or Zel fitting a gopping modern car seat in his Invacar?
Myself personally I like old stuff because they are slow,noisy and leaky,if I didn't I would have a Golf,but understand most people aren't like me and don't like unservoed brakes,trafficators and non adjustable seats.

Why should the wording be any different? The OP can post what he likes and it's up to him what he does with his car, as for negative comments on others dubiously modified cars most people have the good manners to keep their opinions to themselves.

I don't often weigh in with my fourpenny worth but I don't see reason that any forum member should have to give justification for modifications that they do to their own vehicle!

If the car is going to be a royal pain in the ass to drive in modern day traffic conditions with the current drivetrain then its less likely to be used regularly.

I don't blame anyone for modding classics so they can be used everyday comfortably.

There seems to be an increasing amount of intolerence on here and its being vocalised a little too vociferously. If you don't like what someone is doing to their vehicle, thats absolutely fine, as is constructive criticism. Just cut the bitching and whining out - its getting old!

I think the key point here hinges on if it will be used.

If a car is modified and then scrapped, that's a bit of a shame. But if it becomes a usable car and avoids being scrapped, I'm all for it. I didn't see it advertised, but then I wouldn't have bought it either.

This one looks extreme, and personally I'm unconvinced, but if it becomes sorted, properly registered and running then great

Thanks for the support.............Believe me, it'll get used.....which is why it's having the mods it's having.......I wanted something that would do 30 mpg, and cruise at 80 [officer]. When finished, it's going to be a daily driver.
