I don't recall any hybrid swaps in a classic car. But it seems like there were a few swapped into newer car bodies.
Oh hey what's up, haven't seen you online in a while

I highly doubt that. I bought an FRS and there's no space to sandwich an electric motor between the transmission and the engine. They could go belt driven alternator-motor but that idea seems extremely unpopular among car makers for whatever reason.

The one thing is, the car could damn well use a mild hybrid setup as below 2000rpm the engine struggles a bit.
