1962 Volkswagen Double Cab
Interesting, rare, and restored to detail, this 1962 Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab is the kind of machine that will generate ton of interest wherever it goes.
These VW Type 2 trucks have the same cool appeal as the vans, but are a far rarer sight in the USA. After all, the Chicken Tax cut their life short on our side of the Atlantic. So we get particularly excited when you can find one that was restored to a high standard. The Bamboo Cream has a terrific shine from a modern clear coat. Plus, we know you love the coordination over the whole body. Like how the white bumpers match the whitewall tires, wheel covers, and large VW logo leading the way. It also coordinates with the cool white roof rack (the sale even comes with luggage for it!) Those red wheels are a terrific complement to the red hand-painted pinstripe that runs around. the whole truck. But as good as this looks, we also love these for their versatility. 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 remains quite faithful to the original while making sure everything is in good order. 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, single VDO gauge, 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 a 1600cc motor. That's a larger displacement than what was available in '62, but it's hard to visually tell the difference on a VW. So you get a great upgrade to extra power without losing any of the classic Volkswagen spirit that this one really showcases. Remember, 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. While you're checking out this rare double cab, don't forget to look at the undercarriage photos. They are a true sign to how thorough the three-year restoration was.
Complete with owner's manual and title documentation, you know these don't come up for sale too often in the USA, especially at this high level of presentation. So if you were looking for the ultimate attention-grabber at any VW event or just parked outside your business, you need to hurry to get this one. Call now!
