1959 Volkswagen Type 2 Single Cab Transporter

Lot 1058 | West Palm Beach | Sold Price: $52,640

Highlights

  • A unique variant of one of the best known cultural icons of the 60's and 70's
  • Joining the lineup in 1952, the Transporter pickup was first available as single cab flatbed and later as a double cab for the 1959 model year
  • It shared its mechanical underpinnings with the VW Beetle, equipped with a rear-mounted and air-cooled flat-four producing 65 horsepower
  • This Type 2 has been expertly restored circa 2017, and more recently received a freshly rebuilt engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission, complete with welcome upgrades in the form of a Pertonix ignition and a stainless steel exhaust
  • Only 500 miles covered subsequent to the restoration, and just 5 miles traveled since receiving a rebuilt engine
  • White bumpers and VW badge, 15-inch steel wheels nicely accentuate the classic Volkswagen shade of Ruby Red
  • Hinged panels on all three sides of the truck bed aid in loading cargo while also allowing it to function as a flatbed if needed
  • This charming package is completed by a refinished wood bed and a reupholstered grey cloth bench seat
