PEPCO Superchargers for Crosley & VW Engines

Click To EnlargeThe Progressive Engine Products Company, Inc. (P E P C O) designed and marketed PEPCO supercharger kits in the United States beginning around 1950 for Volkswagen and Crosley engines. These roots type blowers were simple, efficient, reliable and designed to rev up to 8000 rpm. Employees at Lou Fageol's Porsche dealership, Emmer Kelley and Arthur Hilf designed and put into production these wonderful compressors. Shortly after their introduction, PEPCO superchargers were manufactured and distributed by Fageol Products Co., 789 Stow St., Kent, Ohio (also shown as Akron, Ohio on some parts and literature.)

Produced in two sizes, the smaller size was designed for Crosley and VW engines. The Crosley compressor is easily identified by the long tapered snout between the compressor body and the pulley. The VW unit was shorter as it did not need the extended snout to fit on a VW engine.

A larger PEPCO supercharger was also available that was designed for MG's and some Porsche engines.
