We have been rebuilding vw transmissions for over 30 years and every rebuilt vw transmission goes thru a rigorous process of cleaning, inspecting, rebuilding and testing to ensure that it will function properly for you upon installation.
All air cooled Volkswagen transmissions are road tested in an actual vehicle to check upshifts, downshifts, and reverse. All transmissions come with a One Year Parts Warranty. We also make it easy for you by having NO CORE REQUIRED; which means there is no hassle of sending us your old core or hidden extra expenses that are common with our competitors.
The Mofoco Freeway Flyer transmission is the VW transmission of choice for 1968 or older Beetle owners who love to cruise on the street and save fuel at the same time.
This transmission is Rebuilt off Original German Core Transmissions. This means the cases are 45-50 years old. They will not be cosmetically perfect and most likely will have some pitting. All transmission cases are bead blasted, inspected, and painted with heavy duty high temp rust protectant paint. If you are buying this transmission for a show car, I highly suggest spending the extra money if you are in need of a cosmetically perfect apperance. Otherwise the Original German Case will function perfectly for your driving needs.
All high performance transmission include only 1 heavy duty side cover because only 1 side is load bearing. If you wish to have an extra billet side cover for appearance, please check the option below.
