One of our local customers recently purchased this 356 Porsche Speedster, She contacted our shop because she was having some overheating and performance issues, After some quick testing we found that all four cylinders had very low compression. after a bit more looking around we found that the previous builder did not believe in cylinder heat deflectors….. So the rings were cooked and the cylinders are in pretty bad condition, I will keep you posted on the progress of this build, Looks like we are going to go with a 2 liter.
We understand the need for a quick VW engine swap, Here at Chirco Performance we always have a few complete turn key engines to choose from, So if you are needed just a simple 1600cc dual port to get you to work or a 2110cc weekend racer Chirco VW Performance has got you covered, In most cases we can have you’re Air Cooled VW back out on the road in just a few hours, Call us toll free at 1-800-955-9795 for you’re next air cooled VW engine.
This is a very solid 1957 VW oval window with original two fold rag top, This VW Oval Window is on display here at the Chirco Performance store in Tucson, We have serviced this car for several years, And the owner is now down sizing and selling off his collection of classic VW’s. The car would make a great daily driver with its upgraded 1776cc engine and synchronized transaxle. The car is offered at 20k, please feel free to call Chirco Performance at 1-800-955-9795 for additional photos and information.
