Holy crap! Talk about a death trap.
And people thought the Vanagon was angular. :lol:

A must-have for the collector (and I have met a few) whose mantra is "I've got one and you don't".

Hormiga means ant in Spanish
Interesting name for a truck.
Maybe it can carry ten times its weight ?

"It has a 1600cc air cooled [B]eetle engine mounted up front making this the first front wheel drive VW."

A) The Hormiga in the ad is a 1977.

B) Production of this vehicle was 1976 to 1978.

C) Volkswagen's first front wheel drive vehicle was the K70, sold from 1970 to 1975.

VW likely took idea for Hormiga from the 1949-1951 Tempo Matador truck...
