VW Beetle with a Mid-Engine Buick V8

Browns Metal Mods built this 1956 Volkswagen Beetle called “Berlin Buick” at their company in New York. The Beetle uses a reinforced pan and rides on a custom independent suspension with RideTech air shocks. A custom tube chassis supports an all-aluminum Buick 215 V8 making 250-275 horsepower and loud sounds through straight headers that exit under the rear windows. The engine retains the factory stroke but is bored .20 over with a Snider custom ground camshaft and features a Hilborn injection stack converted to electronic control via a Holley ECU. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a custom built Mendeola four-speed transaxle.
