Frequently Asked Questions
Vintage Speedsters uses a custom built, jig welded, 2×4 inch 11-gauge steel frame. An original VW pan is restored, shortened and welded to the new steel skeleton. The rigid new structure retains the original VW pan design and integrates the largest frame possible. All of our custom built speedsters easily pass the “jack test”. In addition, the steering wheel is offset slightly, just as an original speedster.
While some manufacturers will lead the customer to believe the use of a VW pan is inferior, it’s hard to argue with some facts. 1) Volkswagen produced over 21,000,000 cars using the pan design. 2) Vintage Speedsters hand built over 3300 speedsters as of 2016. 3) We build more than 90% of the speedsters being sold today.
