I just received photos of the T-shirt the T64 36hp Challenge land speed racing team now has available for a cost of $25.00 each (sizes S M L XL),  $28.00 each (size XXL), including free shipping in the U.S.A.. 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

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.......

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 while still adding this critical safety component.

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."

Jeff Huber of the Gear Garage has completed the transaxle for the T64 and all the components are now coming together in preparation for the first test. When Bruce Cook reinstalls the Dave Miller/Copacetic body back on the race prepped chassis, it will be for the final time. Stay tuned, getting close............

What a beautiful example of body work. I am very impressed with the attention to detail in building it. It's difficult to appreciate the time spent forming this unless you have tried it yourself.  Looks like only the best parts being used! Good luck with your build.

Everyday brings more progress..........................Note the mix of the latest technology (dash) combined with classic T64 pre-1940's styling. Photos by Bruce Cook.

Finished ! ! ! ! After a six year gestation period, the Volkswagen T64 Berlin to Roma collaboration of Dave Miller, Bruce Cook and Whitey Worsham is complete. And if you wish to see it race, schedule April 14th and 15th, 2018, to be in Blytheville, Arkansas, for the initial ECTA event for 2018 ( http://ecta-lsr.com/ ). The fantastic Type 64 Project is amazing in so many details, not just the fact that it even exists. The under car aero can be seen in these photos shared by Bruce and were designed by a team member from the NASCAR world. The aero is designed to help hold the car to the ground at the expected 150 plus mile per hour speeds provided by the DSS 36hp based engine without external wings or spoilers. And note the two large deck lid bumps allowing adequate carburetor clearance. Gonna be fun to see this race.................

I'd love to see that race, don't know if it will happen. What did the 36hp engine dyno at, if you can say? The whole project LOOKS incredible! Best of luck to all involved.

First dyno runs with small venturis showed 180 plus. Further refinements have since been performed. Today ?
