Welcome to OLDSPEED Performance for VW Beetle, Karmann Ghia and Bus

oldspeed EMPI red beetle


Welcome everyone to this website that will focus on original accessories for Beetle, Karmann Ghia and Bus and the oldspeed upgrade for your engine

I guess you can say that your car or bus is OLDSPEED when you have a stock 50's or 60's (maybe even 70's) Beetle / Karmann Ghia / Bus but with an engine upgrade.

The upgrade has to be the correct period, so he has to come from the same period too.

Some names will ring a bell;
Judson Supercharger, Okrasa (Oettinger Kraftfahrtechnische Spezial Anstalt), Shorrock Supercharger, Empi, Speedwell Sprint Kit, Pepco, Mag...

oldspeed W Frank Edmondson Karmann Ghia

The best-known Judson VW ever, taken in 1960.
It was owned by W Frank Edmondson of South Carolina and having bought the Ghia in 1959, took just a few days to realise this was no street performer.

He settled on a Judson Supercharger upgrade and over the next couple of years racked up 38 シ mile class wins.

So pleased was Frank with his Judson he wrote a letter of thanks to the Judson Company and they used his testimony and pictures of the car in a promotional leaflet included in every Judson Kit for a number of years. (from John Moxon)
