Not Factory, but Cool: Squareback Pickup

If a VW Squareback isn't unusual enough for you, in and of itself, why not drive one that's been converted to a pickup?

The seller says this is one of 15 whice were "costumed" in CA in the 70s.  We think costumed is a fruedian slip in this context.  Anywho, various interweb VW sources indicate that there were kits available at the time; so this is either one of many more than 15, or it's one of 15 from a company that failed.

Regardless, the price isn't too radically far off of nice Type 3 prices and the new owner will have something almost unique.

Classic Type 3 front end with a bit of rear-end weirdness.

It's hard to compare this to anythign else, but it does remind us a bit of a unibody Datsun Sunny truck. Of course, the engine location makes things a bit tall.

Nothing unusual here.

As indicated in the ad text, the interior appears to have been recently redone.
