Beck #573 1999

Postby mike550 » Mon Sep 07, 2009 9:02 am

I bought my car off of the second owner so I'm not too sure of the drivetrain specs. I believe my engine is a 2180cc VWT1 that reportedly makes 170 HP. Since I've owned it, I have removed the Beck installed exhaust/heaterbox system and replaced it with the ceramic coated 4-2-1 exhaust from Special Edition. What a great difference in exhaust tone. I dressed up the interior with an ivory banjo steering wheel with a homemade horn button, a spun aluminum gear shift knob and Porsche emblem seat belts. I also replaced the pathetic shocks that came from Beck; now the suspension actually feels legitimate.

I love this car!

Beck #573
Bought from Mike550... first owner had a modern cd player installed on the dash,,, I didn't want mess with fiber now... so I order a Customsound DIN that looks like the old radio but have Ipod, memory stick connector and cd. I order porsche Ivory radio knobs to install and match .
That doesn't look bad at all. car is beautiful, I add the darts on red with gold pinstriping, move the dash knobs around to look more original and add a cable remote trunk opener. Short shifter adapter is a must since the shifter is way too close to the leg. Lot of torque and easy to drive. Banjo steering wheel, 2.1 engine, \"Porsche\" valve covers...more good stuff are on the way.

Beck EV

Postby ommdoc » Mon Jan 18, 2010 12:29 am

Hello all
I just refurbed a Beck 550 EV.
I have no idea what company did it originally, though it was very professionally done.
There are some minor issues with respect to battery access, and Trojan is coming out with a special watering system this year.
Any info on these EV's would be appreciated, as it does not seem to be an individualized unit, but rather a production piece.
thanks
