I 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.
