2006 Volkswagen Beetle Smyth Pickup

Okay, the last converted Pickup was a bit of a letdown in everything but concept:

2002 Volkswagen Jetta Smyth Pickup

Well, as luck would have it, another popped up. This one is based on the much curvier Beetle, and as you’d probably guess (or can see) the results are as retro-inspired as the New Beetle was. So let’s check out the execution of this kit and what it’ll set you back today:

Volkswagen Beetle-New./ pick/up truck, the following items are NEW: Shocks ,Struts, Battery, Tires, Paint, All filters, AIR [Cab & Engine ], Security system, 5 Cylinder, 6 speed- auto-with man. shift, It appears every one wants to take a picture, of it. It runs like a SLOT CAR, gets great mileage, has a great sound, would not be afraid, to go to Calif.in it!! Has a clear, and a indorsed title, this is a younger person truck, I am at 75 yrs. old, come and have fun. Great Driver! Cash, personal check.

Off the bat, I have to say – it really doesn’t look horrible. The rear end looks like a hot-rod version of a Chevrolet Advanced Design pickup, and for one I think it works for the curves of the front end. Inside the leather looks to be in good condition (if a bit saturated by Armor All), and the outside isn’t bad either – though, truth told, I really wish this whole thing was a more fun color. Motivation from the 2.5 inline-5 isn’t as sexy sounding as the 1.8T hooked to a manual, but in actuality I bet it works just fine for what this car is now. Pricing? Well, so far the single bid registered $8k. That’s $1k more than the asking price on the Jetta, but truthfully this one looks to be in much better shape though it’s not nearly as ‘cool’ in VW terms.

  1. “runs like a slot car” …so you mean it spins off the road violently if you take a turn a little too fast? Lol
