Too bad we cannot get a custom body builder on this site.

I think a prototype "pillbug" could be built on a S-10 chassis, or a bigger one (SUV of the future?) on a pickup chassis.

Yeah, the driver would be moved back, but that is not the prmary thing.

From a manufacturer's standpoint the Carden drive is doable but rear engine layouts will not pass collision standards.
