Polliwagen Polliwagon

polliwagon


Designed by Argentine-born Joseph Alvarez in 1973, the Polliwagen derives its name from its appearance and its engine type. It is powered by a Revmaster R-2100-D turbocharged Volkswagen conversion. The Revmaster is closely cowled behind a two-position, constant-speed Maloof metal propeller of 59 inches diameter. The Polliwagen’s ex-ceptionally clean lines give it an excellent speed-to-power ratio as well as fine aerodynamic handling characteristics. The wings are Wort-mann FX-67-K-1 50 wing section with full-span trailing edge flaps and ailerons. Both the wings and fuselage make use of foam/epoxy com-posite construction. Prefabricated parts are also offered in the Polliwagen kit including: molded windshield and canopy, landing gear, disc brakes, complete panels, composite structure wingtip fuel tanks, outward-breaking cabin structure, T-tail, etc.
