found this single cab truck in San Diego off a tip from a Porsche
buddy. It was a two owner with the last owner from 1962 until present.
That's 54 years! The longtime owner was a German Immigrant that
purchased the truck from one of his clients His name was Harold
Freidrich and he went on to co-own and open Scottsdale Motors in
Arizona. He continued to run the parts department. After he died his
widow decided to sell off some of his vehicles. Harold was a great care
taker for the truck and I hope to be also. The truck was never hit
and retains all of its original metal and has had one repaint in the
original Dove Blue. My buddy Matt Montgomery, who know all things
concerning early Volkswagen's, helped me go over this truck with a fine
tooth comb from it's location 1300 miles away! Matt by the way is the
owner and operator of Air Cooled Treasury.
His knowledgeable team can help you with all parts for
Volkswagens. Six volt, four speed, drum brakes, reduction gear
box, AM radio, single side "treasure chest", pressed bumpers, glass rear
lenses, original interior paint and ZERO rust! Even the battery box is
original and still retains most of its paint. I'll be doing some
light mechanical work and detailing along with some new rubber bits but
this will be a fun driver.
Here is the single cab providing Renndienst support at Porsche Palooza 2016.
Mexico Blue and Dove Blue each with their yellow headlights.
