probably figured if a 58 with semaphores is rare, just think how rare it is with just one!

I liked it much better when it was sitting in a field.

That engine case on that truck looks like it sat on the damp ground for a while.
Doesn't matter though, plenty of damaging debris will be sucked into the carb without an air cleaner in place.

Autohaus Pasing kemmt mi bekannt vor. What was the guy back east (from me) asking for it when it was knackered? Hey, at least it has a new lease on life, as long as you make right turns...or stick your left meatbeater out the window haha

Yea, for some reason, I feel like a stock air cleaner should be included for that much $$🙄

Yes, old ad
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2090017

People were going crazy because the previous seller had it for sale for 100K at first. Looks like the ad above says $15K so he came down a little. Wink

WTF with the single semaphore.

I don't doubt the dealer claims but in that book he shows in the ad above, I can see it's a 66-67 Single Cab with the intake vents over the wheel well, not a '59:

you gots to balance that shit out with one bullet turn signal, one Euro spec taillight and USA spec taillight.

In all seriousness, it does look like the seller put a decent amount of effort into trying to make it stock. I like that he redid the logos, stock height, stock color, 36hp engine, etc. There are certainly some things that he missed the mark on, blue undercarriage, no air cleaner, trying to get a real money out of a singlecab, etc.

Hey Everett,

That vintage pic above showing the dealer SC is a BAY Window. Look at the drivers door.

Yup. I'm thinking '69 or '70. I've been trying to improve my knowledge of bay beetle bug truck van minutia.

No reflector behind the front wheel well and drum brakes, it's a 70.

Does anyone else think the SC looks proportionally larger than it should be compared to the people and how much farther behind them it is? Also is that sign a Mobil Oil something?

Yeah, looks like the guy on the left is REALLY short. And yes, that's a poster for Mobil Oil Super 10W-50.
