The Custom Coupe is designed to be a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.  Maybe you want a period re-creation of the original with a fresh-from-the-factory look, or perhaps more of an Outlaw look is what you're after. By sitting down together, we can design and then assemble a truly special Custom Coupe for you.  Any color you can imagine, multiple engine, wheel and tire options, your choice of a vast array of interior colors and styles...the sky's the limit.  So whatever we assemble for you is your personal interpretation and is completely unique.  That being said, here's what every Custom Coupe starts with:

  • Totally Reconditioned VW IRS 5 X 205 Chassis (effortless vehicle registration and smog exempt)

  • Hand-laid, steel reinforced fiber glass body 

  • Disc brakes, front and rear

  • Independent Rear Suspension 

  • All new 2110cc 125 horsepower air cooled flat four 'boxer' engine, with multiple engine upgrades available including Subaru power

  • New original-style chrome 5-lug wheels with 185 x 65 x 15 tires 

  • New wood-rim steering wheel

  • FM/BT radio with two speakers

  • Full leather interior (any color)

  • Warranty 12 months 12,000 miles (24/24 for a Subaru engine)

  • Delivery in 18-24 months

Technicolor Dreams

If you can dream it up or ideally give us a paint sample or number, we can paint your car whatever color you want! 

Our renowned painting process takes four to six weeks, and black takes longer. For the Custom we use the original German Glasurit method of painting, color sanding, and buffing all panels along with finish polishing of all body surfaces.  This ensures that the beautiful appearance of your JPS stands the test of time.

More Power to You

Options abound when it comes to powering your JPS Custom. Standard is a a dynamic 2110cc air-cooled flat four boxer engine, much like you'd find in the original car, except with ~100% more horsepower, rated at 125hp.  From there, you can stay with air-cooled power but go big with the 2332cc cranking out 150+hp. Check out our air-cooled engines video to learn more.


A higher percentage of customers are choosing our liquid cooled flat four Subaru 'boxer' engine.  There are two versions to choose from:  either a 180 horsepower US spec SOHC or a 230 horsepower DOHC version from JDM.  Both these fully reconditioned engines provide smooth, exploitable power right off the line, with an amazing throaty hotrod sound!  They feature a JPS-designed cooling system, invisibly mounted horizontally behind the nose of the car, under the trunk compartment. Though maybe not for the purists, we have to say that these cars are fantastic to drive and sound amazing! 


The Subaru engines also facilitate optional superior heating and air conditioning, and so a JPS-designed under dash-mounted control panel and air conditioning/heating system is also available.
