Wheel-Vo... The itch that needs to be scratched.

Recommended Posts

We all have a "must build" project in mind, and this is mine..

 

Over the years I have restored WH's

Built things that go on them such as a snowplow and harrow...

Added a couple of extra wheels - The 6x6..

And even made a fast fun machine - Project Why Not..

 

Wheel-Vo is the silly/stupid one :lol::D

 

As you all know I paid The Showman a visit the other day and came back with a car load of WH..  A 312-8 although with no engine and trans it's more like a 300-0 :lol:

Here it is back in the workshop thrown in a rather neat pile :D

The plan?

 

The title should of given you a clue, I'm on the look-out for a cheap Volvo that will give up a 2.3 turbo engine, gearbox, rear axle and maybe a few other parts, then sell on the rest to get a few £££'s back..

Of course a standard WH chassis won't be suitable so I'm going to have to build one..

A lot of work ahead but I can/am collect parts while I'm finishing Project MadTrax..

 

There won't be any real updates for a while but I can keep you updated as to how the parts collecting is going..

 

And of course... Video's :D

 I guessed there was a new crazy, mad, crackers, stark raving mad creation on the cards, when you said you were paying Chris a visit. Will it be ready for August, for me to try on my annual jaunt darn sarf? :smoke:

Somehow I don't think Wheel-Vo will be ready by August mate, but please feel free to drop in the workshop when your down this way :thumbs:

Glad to have another Ian project to watch

 

Thanks dude, it's going to be a while until anything really starts on this project, but starting it certainly will do :thumbs:

ooh sounds like a nice mad project, so, would a volvo 850 drivetrain do? i might be able to get one of those cheap;)

 

Sorry for the late reply Koen..

 

The 850 engine I understand does bolt to a rear wheel drive gearbox, but the wiring would be a total nightmare!
