1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.

It has won several Best of Show and first place awards since its refresh was completed in the early 2000s and previous owner drove it for 10 years. Twenty years ago, this Beetle, a former show car, had been demoted to a driver and needed some TLC. Its second owner, a man out of North Carolina, had been looking for a VW project car that already had a good foundation. The NC Beetle was a good candidate because its original owner had already made modifications – chopped top done during the 1980s, frenched taillights from a ’39 Ford, license plate box, filled horn grilles and Exhaust pipe cut-outs and a frenched rear antenna. The car won awards as a show car earlier in its life. Once he towed it home the new owner began making his VW plans a reality. The car’s first visit was to Fender Benders in Charlotte, North Carolina, where owner Fred Propst and his crew took the car apart until it was merely a shell, which was sanded to perfection before Propst painted the shell DuPont Guards Red followed by four layers of clearcoat. Scott Andrews added flames to the solid and very tidy floorpan and clear-coated them, despite that most people will never see them. The results of that first stop still resonates today as the paint and trim are in excellent condition. The tinted windows are in similar condition and the vehicle’s lights are all in great order, the Sylvania XtraVision headlights, Rossi park/turn signals and the aforementioned ’39 Ford blue dot taillights. Other exterior details include Neal billet aluminum disc brakes all around, with Wilwood front and rear calipers and Neal emergency brake, KYB shocks, Sway A-Way front and rear sway bars and polished aluminum Centerline wheels within 135 tires in front and 205 tires in back with silver skull tire caps. The next stop was George’s Trim Shop in Kannapolis, North Carolina, where the car received a red-and-black crushed velvet interior made especially for it. The car has two sumptuous Scat Procar bolstered bucket seats with center console in front, Juliano Royal Deluxe door handles, a fantastic-looking Gene Berg locking shifter, Formuling France three-spoke steering wheel with the Wolfsburg crest in the center and, in a touch of whimsy, a rearview mirror lifted from a Pontiac Sunbird. The crew at George’s fitted an aluminum panel inside and filled it with VDO gauges and a JVC AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and detachable faceplate. Within the console are spots for a vintage VDO clock and resting place for a smartphone. A friend of the previous owner, Steve Bowers, took care of the car’s new heart, a 2110cc flat four-cylinder engine with extensive modifications. He machined the crankcase and fitted a 82mm Bugpack wedgemated crank, Bugpack 5.352-inch race rods, Mahle 90.5mm pistons and an Engle FK-7 camshaft, using Bugpack’s 1.4:1 rocker arms. A set of CB Performance ported and polished Eliminator 2000 heads, a stainless steel 42mm intake and 37.5mm Exhaust valves comprise the in and out for the fuel and air. A Dick Landy Supercharger topped by a Holley four-barrel carburetor replace the earlier, dual Weber 44 IDF carburetor setup. The engine recently was pulled and rebuilt with a couple of changes as of lowering the compression for the blower to 7.56:1. To handle all of the power the engine emits, the previous owner asked Sam Shackelford at Rancho Performance Transaxles in Anaheim, California, to build a staunch IRS transmission using stock cogs plus a Super-Diff, Sway A-Way axles, heavy-duty aluminum side covers and Porsche 930 constant-velocity joints. Current mileage on the odometer shows 52,478 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. VIN: 1137283
