Just like for the other poster. Physical Size, Diameter, Length, Photos of the Commutator and Motor Tag.
My GE motor is a 9" motor and suitable for a VW or any medium to large vehicle. It is on par with the Warp9 but has no internal fan or end shaft. The armature is quite long. Mine is built for using in a VW. Coupled to a 120 volt pack you would have a nice strong motor. I would not go higher on voltage with my motor as it is neutral timed and runs cool and strong. I'd need to figure out how to advance the timing if I wanted to go more with my GE motor but in a Bug even 96 volts with a strong battery pack, like 200 AH Calb or a good A123 pack would do great. Not a screamer but surly a nice street cruiser and freeway flyer.
I'd go 120 minimum with the VW Bug. A123 pack or at least a 160 AH Calb/Thundersky cells. You want a controller that will provide a good hefty amount of amperage when called for during your drive.
The motor in the site below has already been sold. I still have one like it.
