  • Description:
    Original engine swapped for a 1.6L VW engine. It runs great... But, Anybody have an original Barkas or Wartburg engine for sale?
    I heard that Charlie Bigsby in Longmont, CO may have one. I think he had a spare for the Wartburg that I bought from him. Might be worth asking.

      Thanks. Jonathan told me he knows of one in Virginia, too. I may reach out to Charlie.
