This 1974 Volkswagen Type 2 Single Cab Pickup is a sharply restored South American import. It gives you plenty of classic style mixed with the kind of details that are part of the VW traditions that are uniquely South American. So it's a stylish way to transport something unique, and quite frankly, this pickup will get a ton of attention all on its own.
The classic front end is always an attention-getter, and the black of the two-tone dives deep into the center to really showcase .....
the style. In fact, the full paint package is thoughtfully done where you have cool details and intertwining colors - including the blue VW logo up front, the blue bumpers to match the body, and the black wheels. And it's all part of a glossy presentation that comes from a quality restoration. While the VW pickup was born out of a sense of utility, this one just seems to add plenty of style on top of it. For example, the trim that encircles the body not only separates the two-tone, but it also has a mirror-like brightness that can't help but show off the straightness of the fold-down bed sides. And even the wheel wells look clean and impressive. It has a true vintage style, right down to the two-piece wheel covers. The result is the kind of truck that you just know will be a terrific way to promote your business or transport collectibles. And we bet there's a bunch of you who just know how good a surfboard would look in the back of this pickup.
The interior has a classic feel with the airy cab and smooth dash with a parcel tray underneath. But a proper restoration also means taking the time for the right well-integrated upgrades. You get plush full carpeting, well-done door panels, fresh weather-stripping, and supple leather-like upholstery. And speaking of the upholstery, we especially love the bucket seats. They have the classic look, but there are well-done additions with the smooth adjustable tracks and nicely bolstered seatbacks. It makes for a nicer driver, especially when combined with the wood-rimmed steering wheel and EMPI shifter. But our favorite feature may just be the glass. Not only does the split windshield vent, but the rear glass does, too. So you have a terrific way to let the air flow through the cab as you listen to the classic air-cooled motor hum.
Under the rear hatch is VW's famous 1500cc flat-four motor. It has the same extra-fresh and well-coordinated style as the rest of this pickup, and that means both something that you can show off and a powerhouse that loves to run. The freshness extends through the full drivetrain and undercarriage. So you have a classic that shifts crisply with the four-speed and feels confident on the road. It's an overall solid cruiser with power brakes, front discs, and newer (2021) touring tires.
A restored and upgraded VW like this means a ton of beauty without losing its functional side. So you know a unique import is going to attract a ton of the right attention. Call today!!!
