The big issue for having the engine behind the trans is direction of 
rotation, and /or, corresponding direction of travel.  Unfortunately, 
the wheel well and rear bulkhead location on a stock Corvair don't allow 
a lot of options without major modifications to either engine, 
drivetrain, body, or some combination thereof.

The Fiero guys have it made -- the engine (originally Chevy Cavalier) is 
in front of the drivetrain (sorta) but nearly everything of interest 
just bolts up without direction reversals.

Would be interested to hear of other's solutions ...
