Definition of a Volksrod
 
Hi all, Sean from UK

As in the title what defines a Volksrod?

Is it removing fenders, extending the beam as my old car below
https://i.ibb.co/MMmkrL5/IMG-0241.jpg

Or is it like the car below I've been working on for past couple years that has bigger engine and loads of non stock mods?

The answer is yes. :funny:

Here are my volksrods:

All of the above and more. I would say if it has recognizable VW components it may very well be described as a Volksrod.

Re: Definition of a Volksrod
 
My two cents. A volksrod takes advantage of the fact that an air cooled VW Beetle has archaic styling with it's fenders sticking out beyond the main part of the body, like most cars up until the 1940s. Therefore it is fairly easy to come up with a custom car that evokes pre 1950 American car based hot rods that were built in the 1950s and beyond. Given that, I think a volksrod should not be Super Beetle based, unless the McPherson struts are ditched in favor of a more compact type front suspension that fits the hot rod look better. My Honda powered super is not a Volksrod, and I'm thankful that I am accepted with it's story on volksrod!

Suspension-ally speaking. In ‘69, I swapped out the ‘traditional’ and stock front axle in my ‘Nailhead 322 powered ‘47 Ford coupe for a modified 3.8 Jaguar disc brake front suspension. It really improved the stopping, handling, and other Hot Rodders loved it.
A great thing about VolksRods is that ‘non-traditional mods are considered ‘traditional.’👍👍😁

They can work good. Had one for years. They use regular Holley jets. And rebuild kits are available. Make sure you support the carb. I had a bracket from the base to the fan shroud.
