Volkswagen packed a lot of utility into these rare single cab pickups. This 1956 Type 2 Transporter can carry a 3/4 ton payload while sipping fuel instead of guzzling like American trucks. The side and tailgates fold down to increase loading flexibility. Under the bed is a lockable, weatherproof 20 square foot cargo area.

This example has had an outstanding professional restoration; with new paint, complete interior, chrome, all rubber, tires, canvas canopy, and frame. Updated engine, transmission, and 12 volt system. Rebuilt brake system. New tilt canopy canvas with wood and metal support frames, allowing 161 cubic feet of covered wagon charm. The bed has new varnished oak skid strips. The exterior has new paint, tires, rubber, chrome, and safari windows. The interior is also completely new. The brake system is newly rebuilt and has a fully detailed undercarriage. Test miles only since the restoration.

There are a million and one uses for this versatile and beautiful Transporter - this one is ready to be added to your collection.
