The Type 64 crew from North Carolina has shared many body images and now the the highly modified 36hp engine being prepared by Whitey Worsham of German Automotive together with Bruce Cook is nearing completion. The photos below share some of the technology Whitey has engineered into the mighty 36er including a solution to the problem of lifter angle when using Porsche 356 lifters and finding 85.5mm pistons. Enjoy............

FLASH ! ! ! !

The Type 64 recreation body is complete and rolling on the late Beetle chassis. A private open house was held this past weekend to introduce the masterpiece of craftsmanship to the world. Now, it is time for the DSS36 engine and IRS trans-axle installation, roll cage and safety equipment fitment and final assembly and testing, which is anticipated to be complete sometime this Spring. Below are a few pics from the final body assembly and roll-out.

Progress reports will be posted as they are made available. Gonna be fun.......

Beautiful clean engine, rocking a dirty Bosch Blue, such is the way of the Volkswagen Cool

I love this build.

Getting close. Dave Miller at Copacetic has completed crafting the T64 body and doors, the ECTA approved roll cage has been integrated into the body and Whitey Worsham, German Automotive has completed the ultra special 1699cc 36hp based engine (Dyno results will be published soon). This special rolling creation is now in the hands of Bruce Cook who will fit the wiring and race electronics, the transaxle and Whitey Worsham engine. From there, Elbert Efird will finish off the interior and the car will be ready for it's first test runs. Keep watching and we will let you know when it will first run in anger. Stay tuned.........................................

Dave Miller, Copacetic Metal Shaping, is the owner/creator of the body on the amazing T64 tribute racer. Below are recent pics showing the blending of the roll cage into the Berlin-Roma clone. This is not SCTA legal but designed to pass ECTA regulations for the class and speeds the car is expected to reach (est. 150-160 mph). Here are Daves own words and photos.................................Pay particular attention to how the cage is enveloped by the inner bodywork to retain the original Berlin-Roma coupes persona.

In January, Eric Yost (Customs by Bigun) designed, built and installed a beautiful six point cage in the Typ 64.
The car returned to Copacetic Metal Shaping for the final assembly of the body, and finishing touches.

"After nearly five years, the body is finished, and now on loan to Bruce Cook.

Bruce came by on March 16th, and with the help of a few friends, we lifted the body off of my street chassis, and set it on Bruce’s land speed chassis. With some minor adjustment, we were able to bolt the body and chassis together. The body is so light, that half a dozen guys were able to complete the task without damage to the car, or the participants. Bruce and the team are now preparing the car for land speed competition.

We do not know when or where yet, but stay tuned."

OGPaint, the bare aluminum body is coated in a special anti-corrosive protectant and will not be painted. This is to allow folks to view Daves efforts in raw form. JeeWee, the engine dyno results have not been released "yet". They will be posted here when available.
