Warby,
Yes exactly. I want the engine, transmission and suspension.
Basically all the running gear.

All too often you get started down a route and then someone comes along to say "why didn't you use XYZ"..
Often they are right!!.

Eric,
 Ta for that but Hyundai ix35 are not that common over here.Not many turn up in scrap yards

Hi Kip, I take it you are thinking along the lines of a polo, ie front wheel drive, engine,gearbox and drive shafts, suspension, etc, or  is it a "complete" front end including bodywork lights etc?

Maybe I didn't make myself clear.
I just wonder if anyone could point me towards a model of car that has the features I am looking for.
I am not asking if anyone has one for sale.

Looking for a small diesel engine automatic car for a non hovercraft project.
A polo 1.4 tdi comes to mind but an automatic is very difficult to find.
Good MPG and automatic essential. Cheapo  even more important.
Only want the front 3 ft of a car.
Any ideas from out there would be welcome.

New trike?  :)
