No joke, sometimes I lurk about how those horizontal-single tiller-tractor engines could fare in a small car.

It doesn’t take much to mount that existing 1.5 to a manual transaxle

Hard part would be making the motor stand alone with a functional dash

Wouldn't it be an Echo at that point? Seems like the long and hard way to get an Echo! A manual swap in a 2nd gen Prius is more tempting.

Broken Prius fixed into odd looking echo

Also could sell scrap battery and transaxle

The only code I was able to get from it is a
P3030. Maybe it's an easy fix!

Time to start poking at the battery. I bet with suspicion only a couple cells in that pack are actually dead. If that's the case you can probably have a running beater for almost no money. May not get great gas mileage but it's still a cheap Toyota. ��

I pulled the battery out. It has a bit of burnt electronics smell to it. That can't be good, right? I'll open it up soon to investigate.

Make sure there is charge in the cells, don't let them sit and rot.
