1957 Pressed Bumper Single Cab Truck.   Price: $20,200. -UP.
Read this entire ad for information on this 1957 pressed bumper single cab truck.
I’ve had several options listed for this truck with no-one looking at it or buying it so I’m going to fine tune this one more time for anyone interested.
-Yes I want your money over this truck for other things right now but prices are firm with every option listed below, pick which you want.
I am not taking offers or trades, only your money.
-Newest Update-October 2018- put a motor and battery in and drove to Moab for a gathering and back over 6 day trip. Back in August 2018 I put a motor in and drove this from Portland Oregon to Palm Springs California with many stops along the way for week and half road trip. The truck is licensed and insured in my name as it has been for years now, it was one of my daily drivers if I choose for about 8 years until the previous update listed below.
Motor is Out again and not available.
That means as noted below this is being sold with “no motor or battery.”
I’m also going lower the options of various prices I’ve listed previously with taking things off and changing things, I’ll give a couple options but that’s going to be all at this point so read the following choices.
Read below for those details...
- Motor has been taken out and used with something else so supply your own motor and battery.
Big Wide White Wall Radial Tires are now No Longer on this Truck, the Pinstripe Whitewall Radial Tires as shown in several Pictures is what it now has on it. So the answer is Yes, you can put a motor in it and start driving it.
1957 Pressed Bumper Single Cab.
Since I’ve been asked and we all have different ideas and plans, there are Several price options listed below:
- “The Radial Wide Whitewalls have now been taken off the Bus and are no longer available. Motor is now out of Truck and Not Available. Some pictures show both.

$21,000. Minus the Canopy, Frame, and Hurst Bumpers Front and Rear.
$20,200. Minus the Canopy, Frame, Hurst Bumpers and Original Safaries. “I’ll give you pair of old original style glass.”
No Other discounts or trades, pick one of the above and buy the Truck.
Great Priced West Coast Transport Available.
The Following Information has been on this ad since originally posted, some no longer applies, as noted above, the motor is now gone and the big Radial white walls are now gone. This ad has been up for awhile with no-one coming to look at the truck in person, but it’s been seen at many events up and down the west coast up to the past couple weeks “may 2018, when motor was pulled”, and now again August 2018 with long scenic trip from Portland Oregon to Palm Springs California and back. Popular at every stop.... Please read ad details and options for prices, title is clear in my name. Ask questions if you have them, disregard information about motor and big Whitewall tires, otherwise it’s all the same, good truck as is or any direction you want to take it.
Original ad information posted for this, many details you want to know.
This Truck is driven now and then but not as often as it should be lately so its going up for sale. This is a pretty good truck. If you want a perfect truck this is not that, read and look it over for what this one has to offer. This truck has been a driver for the past 15 years, many new mechanical items listed below.

Nice Bus Wheels Painted with Good Caps.

Canopy Frame and Canvas, Canopy Frame is all Metal with Bows painted in wood grain, very strong and can be used to carry items such as canoe, wood and more. Canopy rolls up on 3 sides, can be taken off, all shown in pictures, see photo-bucket album. Canopy is old, it has some rips that need to be repaired by upholstery shop.

Decent front seat.

Good Cargo Hold Compartment, pictures show floor and underside of bed plus cab and drivers side walls.

12 volt with halogen fog and reverse lights and H4 headlights.

Lots of misc little accessories, bumper steps, suicide knob, 3rd brake deck lid, pegasus, badge, license rings, slow moving vehicle magnetic sign, shift extension, vintage accessory lights, reverse flood light, vintage front fog lights, mud flaps, probably some more stuff.

Steering wheel and button is good, horn isn't currently hooked up, door panels are decent, correct parcel tray, door handles inside and out, original church key.

Lights work, signals work, original turn switch soso, been using turn flash manually.

Steering box is good, has very little play now with lots of adjustment both ways, driving good as is now.

Original Splash Tray underneath.

New Shocks.

Doors “Need New Door Rubber”, the outer frame rubber is new, but everything else is old or pretty much gone, this Truck needs a new door rubber kit.

Transaxle is Slow, Motor is Strong but Transaxle is very slow like stock, this would be a good candidate for a rebuild and freeway flyer kit or some combo by a trans builder in my opinion since I’ve done many long trips in this truck, a little more too end speed would be nice.

Cash or Wire Transfer or cashiers check, it doesn’t matter but it has to clear the bank before anything happens so make it good.

This is a good old early vw pressed bumper single cab, ready to go as is or improve along the way. No it’s not perfect, but it’s better then most. Good Stock or Lowered Candidate, these are getting tougher to find and the value is going up as we all are watching.
