I'm skeptical. The roll resistance has a 0-length lever arm.

I was having trouble envisioning how to keep the movement centered on the same vertical line, but I think I have it now:
Why? You could have a one foot lever-arm between the horizontal and vertical hinge, with a 16" transition piece. And two hinges widely spaced hinges, both horizontally and verticall, enableing lighter construction.

That would mean a transition piece between the car body roper and the tail, but the gaposis would be on the top at the front and on the sides at the back
