1968 Volkswagen Transporter
Type 26 (pickup)

The easily recognizable Volkswagen Transporter is Volkswagen's second automotive model. Their first model was known as the Type 1 or “Beetle” leaving Type 2 as a factory recognition to the “Transporter”. With nicknames like minibus, microbus, and hippie van this is a vehicle anyone from the 1960's can remember!

This 1968 Volkswagen Transporter Pickup or “Type 26” was made in Germany on October of 1968 and sent directly to New York. It catches your eye with the newer Neptune Blue paint and loveable design. The truck runs and drives very well with the 1.6 Liter, 1584cc engine completely rebuilt in August 2019 by VW specialists. The clutch is smooth and the four-speed manual transmission shifts well. The four drum brakes work well and are plenty to stop this lightweight truck. The interior is in good condition with dark blue bench seating. A small section of the driver's side floor pan has been patched. The frame is in good condition with only light surface rust. The truck-bed sides and/ or tailgate can be easily lowered by one person. The tailgate is factory designed with two circular holes cut into it to show the brake lights when opened! Below the bed is a large storage area that has lockable access doors on both sides.

Included with this VW is a custom canopy that fits over the bed made by Busware. A retractable metal frame is attached to Ash hardwood boards that support the white, water resistant canopy top. It can be easily adjusted and opens to multiple options. The truck can be driven with the canopy lowered. This traditionally designed custom top makes for an easily setup, attention getting display area.

For an additional $2,500 the custom made, stainless steel rack designed to hold flower pots is for sale. It is bolt mounted to the bed and easily removed. This rack can be seen in use in the attached images.
