Fuji Cabin Hot Rod

With the recent closing of Bruce Weiners’ Microcar Museum, many pictures of before unseen (micro)cars have been posted on various websites. I found a picture of the 1955 Fuji Cabin online and spontaneously thought its’ overall shape just begs for being hot-rodded! It took many modifications, though – and might be next to impossible to realize in 1:1 scale. But hey, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I imagine it to be powered by a Honda S800 four cylinder engine, mounted in the traditional north-south configuration with rear wheel drive. The frame would quite possibly need to be custom made. Axles and other bits and pieces could either come from the same Honda or one of those tiny British roadsters of the sixties…
