Thanks. I think I'll just show up. I'd gotten as far as a New Old Stock case halves that have never been machined. But I'm now 'currently' pursuing an Electric Vehicle conversion that would have 68hp and weigh no more than a stock Beetle.

Here's my Salt Flats design, the boattail doesn't show at this angle:

Love the design concept Lewism. When do you hope to race at Bonneville?

Please be sure to say hi when you hit the salt. I will be wearing a Panama hat and hangin' with the VW guys at the VW group pits located at the very north end of the pit's, and at the 130 MPH Club start line. See you on the salt.

Below are two new photos of the T64 dash and engine compartment plus reposts of earlier photos that became deleted. Hopefully these will not disappear a second time! While you can see progress is being made, this will be the last update post for awhile.

The publicity this car has generated created a problem for the builders with too many interruptions from both media and curious observers calling and stopping by the shop(s) and it has seriously slowed their ability to spend time completing the T64 versus "talking about it"! Any further updates will be at the discretion of the builders and it is requested that all contact with them be deferred until after completion of this very special 36hp Challenge racer.

It has been awhile since the last update on the 36hp Challenge Type 64 recreation being built in North Carolina. The crew of Bruce Cook, Dave MIller, Whitey Worsham and Elbert Efird have been working vigorously behind the scenes to make this masterpiece come together so I thought I would post the latest photos they have shared. As can be seen, the extremely difficult part of creating the body, all of the interior panels, are now formed and installed. Kudos to Dave for this amazing effort. Enjoy the images............Burly

G'day everyone

Below is the latest T64 36hp Challenge racer update from Dave at Copacetic. Enjoy.........

Burly


Happy New Year!

It has been a long time since the last photos in July, but the work continues.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


The doors and lids have been been assembled. The front lid and doors are hinged and latched.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


The rear lid needs more attention to the fit, and it will be pinned and latched rather than hinged.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


The difficult engineering and design issues have been solved, though I am certain that there will be refinements before the project is complete.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Yes, there is still a lot of work left, but I can see the completed body from here.



I’m still working on the taillight configuration, but I think I’ll stick with “snowflakes.” Fortunately, the taillights will be pretty simple to change around. It looks like each of the original T64's had three distinct and different configurations, so I figure a fourth would have also.

The rear 3/4 view shows the "snowflake" 55 to 57 taillight assemblies. I will describe them as "non T64" style to distinguish the clear definition between the Copacetic T64 vehicle(s) and the KDF originals.

I’ll let the engine and chassis guys update you on their progress.

This is the I.R.S. chassis that will set beneath the beautiful T64 body currently being assembled in North Carolina.

Out of country Challengers will need to email the address below for a quote on shipping to non U.S.A. addresses.

Below is the image on the front of the T64 "T".

"Versuchswagen" translates to "Experimental Car" in German, which is a great name for the team of dedicated VW enthusiasts recreating this most rare and iconic Volkswagen from the mind of Dr. Porsche.

Just received these photos of the next stages of the DSS36 36hp engine being crafted for the Type 64 36hp Challenge racer by Whitey Worsham of North Carolina. Simply amazing the new technology being applied to these ancient engines. Photos by Bruce Cook.

Enjoy
