The Low Power Wagon
As with the first Impossible, the important part of this build is to get the body to scrape the pavement, while preserving the four wheel drive system. The fact that the body has been sectioned compounds the problem, as there is now less space inside the sheetmetal in which to cram all the workings. What do you do? Relocate the engine to the bed, or the passenger seat? You'd have to re-engineer the front wheel driveline. Smaller engine? Why bother? What's the point of a Power Wagon without the power?
Can it be done in the real world, or is it doomed to be only a screwball idea on watercolor paper?
