Continental Fan Belts

#1 Post by Paul Hatfield » Fri Aug 17, 2018 10:37 am

Some of you have probably seen that I am now selling my reproduction of PORSCHE PHOENIX generator/fan belts. I believe these to be correct for B and C cars. If this goes ok (at least breakeven), I'm thinking of doing the belt pictured below.
I realize there were different versions of the Continental belt, but without overwhelming demand, producing all of them is just not practical. To much labor costs for AutoCad and too much tooling investment.
Does anyone know what years the belt pictured below would be good for? I am hoping it would have a broad range of acceptability- maybe all except Pre A?
Please do feel free to send me an email at if you're interested in one or more. If the interest shows at least a breakeven, I'll start the project at low volume.

I'm just curious about the Porsche label on your fan belts. I thought that Porsche carefully guarded their copyrighted name
I've heard stories in the past of several businesses that have had to change names to keep the wrath of Porsche at bay.
Is this working out for you?
