Has anyone dropped a 215 V8 in a Nash Metropolitan???

I am just wondering if anyone has dropped a 215 V8 in a Nash Metropolitan??? I search the site and did not see anything. They came originally with the MGB 1500 so I am guessing with the MGB GT and the 300, there should be some similarities and maybe even some conversion kits that would possibly work for the Nash as well. Anyone?

Gm v6 with automatic from Camaro etc might be simpler due to engine length and small engine compartment as these used the mg midget type running gear not the mgb engines

Here's one with a GM 3.4 v6. Went to high school with a guy who had one with a 200 Ford six with the Dagenham 4 speed.

There was a very similar blown V8 Nash that used to come to the Houston Cars/Coffee. Haven't seen it in several years though.

If I could afford it, I'd snatch it up. That car looks amazingly well done and I bet it's a hell of a fun ride.
