I've added some pictures of the Independant Rear Suspension (IRS) that 
is on the '67 MGB GT, that I got last weekend, to the bottom of the web 
page.  The pictures show a little how the Corvair transaxle is mounted.  
The car still has the stock gas tank; however, the centers of the 
battery boxes were cut out and the fuel pump was relocated.  I bet there 
are not a whole lot of IRS equipped MGBs out there - the amazing thing 
is you cant tell from the outside - unless you look underneath.  I've 
also added a few shots of how the drive shaft comes off of the back of 
the engine, where the guy rigged the a clutch housing, before going back 
to the transaxle.  The car has a mechanical clutch (and dual brake 
master cylinders).  I took these pictures while laying on the ground 
under the car, some day I will get it on a lift with better ones.  Here 
is the link again:
