I'm planning on doing just that, but only after I convert the brakes to
drums, remove the AC and install a dash mounted 12V caged fan with sheet
rock screws, remove front and rear suspensions and replace with a leaf
spring and king pin setup, find some nice 12 inch heavy steel
"wagonwheel"  rims and tires, and put a nice vinyl front bench seat out
of a 1970 Maverick with a big rope and cleats to replace those
problematic seat belts.   ;-)

I'd be willing to be there's a V8Q rolling around Montevideo, Uruguay
with a Mercyless Benz diesel drivetrain, close enough.
