The Isuzu technically hasn't got a spare wheel because it's molded into the roof whereas the two others are true spare wheels but you get the idea and it's good to have a useless fun thread sometimes. Feel free to add yours.

Did that one with the tire sitting in front of a way-set-back motor really come that way as a 1:1? What kind of car was it? And who did you have to pay to do engine work?

It did come that way as a 1:1. Check the section about the Mark IV here:

Quite an interesting New Zealand connection there.
As an addition to Kiwi's response, there have been other cars with the spare ire in the engine bay as well. All Corvairs except those from 1960 ad 1969, and those with air conditioning had their spares in back with the engine, for instance, and many older Subarus, with their low-profile boxer engines, save trunk space by mounting the spare above the engine as well.

Just curious: Where is the Zephyr's radiator?
