Can you switch a front wheel drive vehicle to a rear wheel drive vehicle?

Anything is possible with time, money and some serious modification. Front wheel drive vehicles are not designed to accept the dimensions of the parts that are needed for rear wheel drive. The engine compartment is designed to accept transverse (sideways) mounted engines not inline engines, there's no transmission and driveshaft tunnel, a custom driveshaft would likely be required, there's no clearance for a rear differential, etc. Converting a front wheel drive vehicle to rear wheel drive would probably cost considerably more than buying a rear wheel drive vehicle.
