This is one of those cool classics that generate interest wherever it goes, especially with VW people. After all, a 1990 Volkswagen Transporter truck like this wasn't even allowed in the USA when new. So to have something this unique in a survivor-grade pickup is already attractive, even before you check out the affordable price.

A double cab pickup is quite a rare and interesting sight. The Chicken Tax had made it too expensive for VW to import trucks to the USA, and so this entire generation of Transporter was never sold here new. That's why you're looking at an independently imported example that started life Sweden. In fact, the Magnum edition is believed to be a rare version only offered there. It's a highly original example, and even the paint is believed to be the factory application. That creates a cool blend of outlaw classic and survivor-style care. But the attraction is more than just the stories you can tell with this Transporter, because we know you love the way it looks, too. It has a hint of a sporty look with 15-inch alloys, a chin spoiler, and the sleekness shared with the Vanagon. And you can see that the rear is ready to get down to business. Volkswagen was quite clever at how to stack cargo, and that's why you can take down any side of the bed for easy loading. Or, you can even fold down all sides and turn your pickup into a flatbed transporter. So something this distinctive, and also still so useful, is great for everything from promoting a business to a support vehicle for you other classics.

Just like the exterior, the interior is quite original with great survivor-grade touches throughout. The clean dash, rubber floor, and full cloth interior all show signs of great care. The driver's high-back bucket seat is great for a commanding view of the road. The large factory dual-spoke steering wheel and easy to reach gearshift have the kind of functional operation that will remind you of the Type 2 Transporters. Of course, this comes more comfortable than those early VWs with features like an AM/FM/cassette stereo and a sunroof. This is a double cab pickup, which means you get the added utility to use for everything from secure storage, to taking extra family and friends along for the ride.

Just like the Vanagon, this Transporter is powered by VW's 2.1-liter flat-four. However, this fuel-injected powerplant is the high compression version. That means it delivers a satisfying amount of acceleration and the right power to take advantage of the tow package. Plus, these have some very European characteristics that make driving particularly nice. The motor is mounted low in the body for a low center of gravity, and the weight distribution is quite even. There's also a fully independent suspension, power brakes w/discs up front, and the control of a four-speed manual transmission. So if you've never driven one before, you're going to be surprised at how lively this VW feels on the road.

You know these don't come up for sale too often in the USA, and so it's time to act fast before one of the most affordable examples is gone forever. Call today!!!
