Single-Cab Pickup
Chassis #: 671922
Sold for $64,400 at 2018 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island.
The Volkswagen Dutch importer Ben Pon is credited with the idea for the Type 2. While visiting the factory in Wolfsburg, Germany with the intention of buying Type 1s to import to the Netherlands, he saw an improvised vehicle used to transport goods. He created a doodle dated April 23rd of 1947 with the idea of using the Beetle chassis. Since production was at capacity, the idea was put on hold. The first Type 2 Transporter rolled off the production line on November 12th of 1949 and first arrived on the American continent in 1950.

The Type 2 Transporter used standard Beetle components. It would further evolve into other vehicles, including a pickup truck and cargo/delivery van, as well as the Microbus.

This particular example is finished in red and white. It is a single-cab pickup that spent most of its early life on the West Coast of the United States prior to being fully restored in 2009.
