1966 Double Cab Recently Restored   Price: $66000
A stunning, clean 1966 Double Cab in Dove Blue that has only seen 1,800 miles since undergoing a thorough, multi-year, professional restoration. The restoration was carried out using the best parts and materials available, many provided by names recognized throughout the VW community. NOS/German parts were used when available. Throughout the restoration my goal was to maintain the unique simplicity of Volkswagen commercial vehicles while building a vehicle that is safe & pleasurable to drive in modern day traffic.

The truck was was a solid candidate to start with having been off the road and sitting in a garage since 1983. The entire bed of this truck is all original metal which is almost unheard of with these trucks and a good indication that this truck was not an abused work truck in its early life. All metal used in the restoration was Gerson (KlassicFab) panels including a full new set of Gerson drop gates. The truck was stripped to bare metal during the restoration process to ensure no surprises were hiding beneath.

Mechanical Highlights:
Professionally built 2007cc engine - all new parts including new AS41 case
Rancho Type I Pro Street IRS Transaxle
Bus Boys IRS conversion
Narrowed front beam with adjusters
Wide Five Flipped Spindles
Airkewld front disc brakes
Gene Berg GB 6750 Shifter

Other Highlights:
Seat covers by Matt Miller - early commercial style
Interior panels from Clara (Sunrisebuswerk)
NOS handles keyed to match ignition
Restored VW factory safari windows
Gauges restored by Orange Empire Speedometer
Full 12v conversion (gauges, wipers, lights, etc)
