This is a wonderful example of a completely restored 1967 Volkswagen Single Cab. This 1967 Volkswagen Single Cab pickup has only been used as an outside showpiece for a Porsche collector's facility. This Volkswagen has received many compliments from the guests prior to their tour of the collection. This VW has a 1,493cc (l-.51) engine that produces 38 HP. It has been completely rebuilt mechanically by the noted VW facility, Klaus Garage in Hopewell Junction, NY. The out of bodywork included a new ignition system, fuel lines, carburetor rebuild, and new seals. Additionally, the car received a new exhaust system; the brakes were refurbished with new brake shoes and wheel cylinders. The exterior of the car was brought down to bare metal. New sheet metal was inserted where there was rust and then primed and painted. The light grey interior was completely redone with a new split bench, seat belts and door panels.
This model represents the first generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 (T1) Transporter and is most sought after by collectors as it is the only year of the T1 model that has a 12-volt electrical system. It is often referred to as the ‘splitie’ because of her front split windshield. The Volkswagen Single Cab Pickup was manufactured in Hanover, Germany.
This fully restored utility vehicle would make a fun addition to the concours lawn. A Volkswagen Transporter Factory Manual and a VW wristwatch accompany this automobile.
