Mk3 Vw Golf Rear wheel Drive conversion

8 November 2011 6 Comments

This is something I personally have dreamt of doing to my Mk1 golf. A guy in Germany has done it to his Mk3 Golf, he has gone all out though.
The project all started off with a bare Mk3 Gti shell.

The car was then fitted with a modified Volvo T5 power plant. A couple special bits were added to the motor as you can see from the pictures.

Next the body was treated to an awesome powderkoting ,rollcage and sprayjob.

The drive train was put in place and all the bolts were secured.

The car complete and all but together.

    denzel, the best way would be to build the motor into the back of your car and then use the same fwd gearbox. there is a mk1 golf that used to drag race at killarney like that.

    Hi, I had the same idea.
    I owned a Golf Mk4, as well as a Corsa B 130iS and attempted to have either one on ‘em converted to RWD. After finding out how much input it demands, both physical and financial, I sold the Corsa and got me a good old ’71 Capri Pirana V8. (running fabulously)

    I admire guys who go through all that trouble and I bid YOU good luck. My jaw drops everytime I see the results of some guys’ effort. You may call me a wuss, but it’s all just too much for me.

    For now . . . V8 all the way Pappa . . . .

    that pretty much my thing aswell i wanted to have a rwd and converting my mk1 Golf would cost way to much so i bought me a Bmw E30 which will hopefully soon have a 1JZ (toyota supra engine) sitting in the engine bay :)
