Have to say that is most wierd conversion I have seen. A VW Beetle floor pan and engine fitted to an Allegro. Less power than standard!

It's running a stroked 1.6 with a different cam so has more power then a 1500 E series, sounds nuts too.

On Mighty mods they had to do some bulkhead cutting to make the scooby engine fit, I've roughly measured the space in the white Allegro though and there is plenty! I keep nagging him to lookout for scooby bits.
