500 "HotRod"

I am classic 500-collector, and I plan building one into HotRod style.
I want it to sound like a "big" Rod, and consider giving it a V6 engine mounted in "back seat position". (I am not going to drive it for real, just park it in front of the cafe!!)
It will be a quite tight squeeze, so i think i might go for an engine from a front wheel drive V6.

Does anybody have an idea on what engine to choose ?
-VW/Audi is obvious, but I would prefer something 1960/1970s.
What other cars has been made with V6 FWD?

A Harley engine might be fun as well....
Has anybody tried bolting a bike engine onto a car rear end ?

-Or has anybody experience from transplanting engines into 500s?
