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............

Here are some images of the Type 64 re-creation being built in North Carolina for the 36hp Challenge. The crew of Bruce Cook, Dave MIller, Whitey Worsham and Elbert Efird have been working vigorously behind the scenes over the past four years 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

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............

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.................
