They die after 70000 miles. Head and piston rings. Full rebuild not difficult and parts are getting cheaper. Sold my full car with a rebuilt engine £500 tested with no faults.
Obviously using the wrong engine! Maybe this would be better?

So basically the engines are pretty sh$t then - but the most important thing is they are cheap (for a reason!) so ideal for using in a project then  ::) ::)

All the smart fortwo cars are rear wheel drive, deisel and petrol were made, full auto and semi. I assume you want an auto as the engines going at the back and you don't want to fanny with the linkages etc.
You can pickup a smart for 300 quid with, they suffer from dropping a cylinder. So if you don't mind taking the head off and fixing a valve its an extremly cheap, all aluminium engine setup, with power ranges from 60 to over 100hp.
Not telling why I have been researching this. :)

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,
