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 wasn't 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, there's a lot of useful appeal behind the unique style.
Volkswagen was quite clever at how to stack cargo. That's 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. There's even storage under the bed.
The interior has a clean and classic style with the right upgrades
to make this a better driver's classic. Vintage-style seats, good
door panels, and a smooth dash are all part of the comfy style.
There's 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 driver's seat.
The flat-four motor is a big part of this pickup's desirability.
It's 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 there's more here than just durability.
There's plenty of polish back there in the tidy engine bay that
tells you they have made a solid investment here. It's 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, it's linked to the
sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows
you to get the most out of the motor. It's 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
The sale comes complete with the factory wheels. You know these
don't come up for sale too often in the USA, and so it's time to
act fast before one of the most fun and distinct examples is gone
forever. Call today!!!
