Pickups come in all shapes and sizes, from heavy duty brawler to car-based cruiser. The Volkswagen Type 2 falls somewhere in between, a definite workhorse but geared more towards light duty. While Volkswagen still sells plenty of commercial vehicles, we haven’t been privy to any in the US market since the early 1970s, thanks to your friendly government and a little thing called trade wars. This restored 1959 Type 2 Single Cab for sale in California comes from a time well before that legislation and looks absolutely amazing in metallic green sitting on mag wheels. Rarely do these VW trucks catch my attention, but this one has.

Our last visit into VW Bus-land was with a couple of extreme restomods much more focused on looks than function. Today’s is just as gorgeous but a bit more original. Inside and out it appears like-new, but the dark green and white combo keeps it from looking too much like an overdone toy. It also comes with the EZ Camper package, making it the perfect machine for roadtrips or, as the seller aptly cites, concerts. It may not have quite the usability of the T3 Westies I so often feature here, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be a huge amount of fun. 60s Buses are going for crazy money these days so you’ll have to decide if the classic VW Van is worth that much to you. If it is, this is the one I’d go for.

December 2013 marked the end of an era at Volkswagen. The last Type 2 Kombi rolled off the assembly line in Brazil and with it the chapter closed on an impressive 56 year production run. Around the world, this was a vehicle with multiple personalities, available in minibus, pickup and panel van form. From ambulance duty to the camper’s companion, this VW has cemented its place in automotive history. This T1 panel van for sale in Arkansas is done up in Porsche racing livery. After being stored for a number of years, this is a van that is bound to capture the attention of Porschephiles and track day enthusiasts.

Let’s be honest. While we all sit back and cry about the E30s and early 911s we should have bought, it’s hard to predict which…Comments closed
