Hi, many thanks for you reply.
I must confess that I haven't yet given it a huge amount of thought - hence the Vauxhall Calibra comment: They can be converted easily, as certain models were 4WD, but I'd rather convert a Rover 600 as they aren't as old or anything like as prone to rot as an old Vauxhall/Opel!
It's the choice of rear axle and getting the drive outboard to the rear wheels that is the difficult thing more than mods to the tunnel, as once the exhaust pipe is moved, there's plenty of tunnel in which to put a propshaft. The question of space for a gearbox isn't a huge issue as I only need room for an electric motor as I'm planning a conversion to electric power: All the style and comfort of a Rover 600, with no dependency on oil.
Thoughts observations and advice welcome.
