Seller's Notes

We all want a classic that's unique, stylish, and fun. This 1968 Volkswagen Type 3 Truck really understands that. After all, it's a custom pickup build done over a hardy VW chassis. So you get a memorable car that's easy to drive, and it's offered for an affordable price.

The Volkswagen Type 3 series was one of the most versatile around, and this custom pickup takes it a step further. After all, you have a full truck bed in the rear, and up front, there's a spacious trunk. But really, you're not interested in the one for its cargo ability. You just love it because it's the kind of cool custom that's likely unique in every crowd, and at the same time, is united by the kind of individual spirit that has endured us to classic Volkswagens. And the workmanship here is quite nice to show off. The bed is carpeted, and there's a soft tonneau cover that visually connects it to the full vinyl roof. It looks like a professional product, right down to the working tailgate. There's a sporty look with straight and sleek sheet metal, quad exhaust tips, and 15-inch wheels that match the car's red paint. The window overhangs and bumpers are also color-matched for a uniform style. It's an overall driver-quality finish and that means a driver-ready attitude because after all, custom VWs are meant to be out there and enjoyed.

The interior does a great job of keeping all the classic VW components you like while adding the right custom touches. For example, the high-back bucket seats that made a lot of later VWs quite comfortable are still present here. The door panels, dash pad, VDO gauges, and other fundamentals are all classic Type 3. The steering wheel has the right touch of individuality with the center done in red to match the exterior and the dash. There's an EMPI shifter for a sporty feel, and the Kenwood AM/FM stereo with USB and Bluetooth mean the best in driving music. So it feels quite easy to cruise this custom.

Another reason why this is such an attractive driver is because of what's in the hatch beneath the bed. This air-cooled pancake motor doesn't take up very much space under the rear floor. And while it has some cool red custom style so that you can show it off with the rest of the car/truck, the components of the motor remain refreshingly stock. So you have the same hardy engineering that went into Volkswagen's Beetle and Bus. That means this dual-carb 1600cc motor fires up readily with its hypnotic classic air-cooled hum. The well-designed independent suspension, control of a four-speed manual transmission, and front disc brakes all come together to make this a solid driver.

This is the custom classic that also has the same hardy appeal as the rest of the VW's Type 3 line. It's a great way to drive anywhere on a weekend and be memorable everywhere you go. Call today!!!
