There is not a full automatic but there was the old buttermilk automatic transmission, no clutch and you could shift it if you wanted too but you didn't have too, you still might be able to find one of those out somewhere, but they weren't very reliable, in the car but might be OK for a Trike setup.


You can get adapters to use GM automatics with your VW engine. https://secure.chassisshop.com/partdetail/C12-300/
