Description of RARE FIND, BELIEVED ORIG 1600 CC, 4 SPD, ORIG BILL OF SALE, VERSATILE, FUN!

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 in a survivor-grade pickup is already attractive, even before you checkout the affordable price.A double cab pickup is quite a rare and interesting sight. The Chicken Tax had made it too expensive for VW to import trucks to the USA, and so a second-generation Type 2 like this was never sold here new. That's why you're looking at an independently imported South American VW that has been in same family all its life. That creates a cool blend of outlaw classic, and long-term care. But more than just the stories you can tell with this Type 2, we know you love the way these look, too. The original gray/green paint and white bumpers have the same rugged appearance that's essential on any true pickup that's ready to get down to business. And Volkswagen was quite clever at how to stack cargo, and 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. So something this distinctive, and also still so useful, is great for everything from promoting a business to a support vehicle for you other classics.Just like the exterior, the interior is quite original with great survivor-grade touches throughout. With more than just an interesting history, these were great for giving the driver a commanding view of the road. The large factory two-spoke steering wheel and easy to reach gearshift should feel a bit familiar to Beetle fans. This is a rare double cab pickup, which means you get the added utility to use for everything from secure storage, to taking extra family and friends along for the ride.You're looking at the 1600cc motor that's believed to be original to the vehicle, and a quick conversion from kilometers tells us this has averaged less than 475 miles annually. And while originality and low mileage already add to this VW's impressive story, we've been also hinting at how this great surviving classic is also still ready for work duty. A big reason for that is the engine. This is the same flat-four that brought the Beetle its global reputation for being tough-as-nails. So to have it in a pickup only adds to its utility that's why the rest of the world has used these for everything from farm vehicles to medical transport. The motor has been under good maintenance, so it fires up easily and runs nicely. 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 reliability and fun driving. And while the drivetrain is part of that rugged Beetle tradition, the second-generation Type 2s benefit from the improved rear suspension design.An interesting and amazing survivor that even comes with items like the original bill of sale and owner's manual. 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 affordable examples with the best story to tell is gone forever. Call now!!
