Sharing a chassis with the much-loved VW microbus, the Type 2 pickups were one of the original compact trucks which became so popular in later years. With their rear mounted, air cooled four cylinder engines providing power, they were an economical load-mover capable of hauling considerable weight. This one has a unique custom paint scheme that allows it to stand out from the crowd but even in stock form, they are so uncommonly seen that taking one out is a sure crowd pleaser.
