With an exhaust note that can do a pretty good impression of a small block Chevy if the right pipes are mounted, why not drop in a V-Max V4 instead of the Chevy? It looks like at least one guy did exactly that when building a hot rod T bucket. B. Tree III left a comment pointing to a photo from another link in our previous post where you can see it.
It appears the builder is from Michigan, and the car looks like one of those T bucket kit cars with a fiberglass body. I found a few more photos on another forum and the fellow that took them said he talked to the builder who said there was about $7000 in the gearbox since the Vmax rotated the wrong way.
I have no other information, but if one of our readers from up in Michigan knows more about this or who the builder is, let us know. I’d like to follow up.
