It can either be pretty or go fast. What year stock body will you use, a split? It would be interesting to see just how aero a split is.

Press Release

Team Versuchen
Type 64 Tribute Vehicle
March 5, 2018

For immediate release:

Deja Vu

It has happened again. In 1939 Dr. Porsche created the KDF Typ 64 competition car to race in the Berlin to Rome high speed endurance race. World War 2 happened and the Typ 64 never turned a wheel in anger, leaving Dr. Porsches dream unfulfilled. Deja vu, and now the new handcrafted Typ 64 tribute car created to race for top speed records has met a similar fate.

Much to our regret, Team Versuchen, the group preparing to race the recently completed Type 64 KDF/VW/Porsche tribute car, has no option but to announce that planned competition with the car in April at the E.C.T.A. land speed event in Blytheville, Arkansas, will not take place. Due to legal complications, Team Versuchen has severed all ties with Copacetic Metal Shaping and Dave Miller.

It saddens us to advise all Team Versuchen followers, especially after all the effort and investment over the past six years, that it will not be possible to utilize the Type 64 tribute body or the unique custom components designed specifically for this special vehicle in a competitive environment.

All of your interest and support has been greatly appreciated.

Sincerely

Team Versuchen
Bruce Cook
