Classic Car Overview

This is one of those cool classics that generate interest wherever it goes, especially with VW people. After all, a 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 Transporter panel truck like this wasnt even allowed in the USA when new. So to have something this unique is already attractive even before you check out upgrades to the motor, interior, and more. The Chicken Tax had made it too expensive for VW to import trucks to the USA, this vehicle was potentially, independently imported, and that makes it truly distinct even before you check out all the custom details. Cool pinstriping, a brighter front end, and an EMPI single exhaust tip are fun details. And everyone loves the look of Fuchs-style wheels on a Volkswagen to remind them of the Porsche/VW connection. Type 2 fans will take note of the early-style front bumper with integrated steps. The creamy white paint has the look of a smooth but purposeful shop truck, and of course, the decals on the side really drive home that feeling. You can also easily remove them and use this VW as a way to promote your own business. In fact, theres a lot of useful appeal behind the unique style. Volkswagen was quite clever at how to stack cargo. Thats why you can take down any side of the bed for easy loading, or you can even fold down all sides and turn your pickup into a flatbed transporter. Theres even storage under the bed. The interior has a clean and classic style with the right upgrades to make this a better drivers classic. Vintage-style seats, good door panels, and a smooth dash are all part of the comfy style. Theres an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo for better driving music, and this even has an electric rear defogger. And the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, tall shifter, and handy AutoMeter tach give you a solid feeling every time you hop into the drivers seat. The flat-four motor is a big part of this pickups desirability. Its the same powerhouse that brought the Beetle its global reputation for being tough-as-nails. So to have it in a pickup only adds to its utility. But theres more here than just durability. Theres plenty of polish back there in the tidy engine bay that tells you they have made a solid investment here. Its a 1776cc motor, which was larger than what was available at the time, and it has a dual carburetor setup. So it has a little extra pep in its step and a fun sound from the exhaust. Plus, its linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor. Its an unbeatable package that provides robust and fun driving. You even get features like power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires thanks to the wheel upgrade. The sale comes complete with the factory wheels. You know these dont come up for sale too often in the USA, and so its time to act fast before one of the most fun and distinct examples is gone forever. Call today!!!
