Charger, Embeesea Chepeko | Wed, 23 Jul 2008 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
This odd vehicle (spotted on the KitCars.com forums) is an “Embeesea Chepeko”, a vehicle that seems to sit between the shorter Charger and the later full-sized Charger 2+2 model (and also very similar to the Siva Saluki). Generally mounted on a VW Beetle chassis, this one actually is running a Ford Crossflow engine on a flipped VW transaxle in a midengine configuration. It was built for a friend of the designer’s and as such has thicker fiberglass than usual and several minor modifications. I’ve emailed the new owner, who saved it from the wreckers, for an update on the project and more pictures.
