Interview concerning LH's

http://www.allpar.com/history/interv...n-LH-cars.html

some really neat insider info on the LH as it was being developed.

"Yeah, and he was very much a proponent of having… he wanted front-wheel drive. In fact, there was a lot of talk about that car being all-wheel drive because the way the trans was, with that chain at the back of the trans, you could come right off the back and it wouldn’t have been that…"

"Yeah, it did really well in the snow. We had a lot of load over the front axle. And the other thing that architecture allowed was it wasn’t that hard to make rear-wheel drive out of it, and we did. There were cars in that timeframe that were rear-wheel drives. There were 360s [V8 engines], the 999 [transmission], the four-speed Torqueflite. And just a few tests… it wasn’t what you would call an approved series program, but it was there. It was on people’s minds."
