Do you think that the diesel engine will fit in the

I've got a '66 squareback sitting out at my parent's
house waiting for a restoration.

It, too, has everything to put together a running gas
engine as well as a full engine I bought at a swap
meet, no idea how it runs.  (And I'd be willing to
sell it to an interested party...)

When I had the two Rabbits sitting in my yard, I
thought briefly about a diesel 'back but don't think
the engine would fit mounted normally.  I think it
would protrude into the passenger compartment.

A Fastback or Notchback would be easier, since both
had two trunks so the rear one could be "converted"
into an engine compartment.

Just wondering if you'd come up with a way to solve
that problem.  Or if I'm incorrect in my thinking.  I
never measured, but I didn't think that the opening
was high enough over the engine.  Perhaps a vanagon 50
degree kit?
