1961 Volkswagen VariantReview
Shorty — 1960 VW Transport, shortened 30 inches, 1600 dual port engine. Bought the Single Cab pick up from an older Texas gentlemen that used it in his oil fields. The underside had about 3/4 inch of crude oil and red dirt caked on everything. Took me about 6 months to take it from a basket case to what you now see.
