An incredibly crude, old, weird, aircooled VW truck that’s very rare, over here and available in peachy condition. I think we just found Jason’s new ride.

In case you don’t know what a VW Hormiga is, hear it from the master himself. I know that’s where I first I heard of it.

For the lazy of click, it’s the Mexican version of the VW Basistransporter, a very basic truck sold in CKD kit form for assembly in various developing countries in the ‘70s.

  • Crude? It’s a welded square tube frame with flat steel panels bolted on.
  • Old? made somewhere between ‘75 and ‘79
  • Weird? It’s front wheel drive yet:
  • Aircooled VW? yep- plain vanilla 1600cc Type I VW flat-four
  • Rare? one of 500 left, apparently
  • Over here? El Paso, TX
  • Available? $11k or near offer

Also: wooden stake bed to keep those sculptures in check. Perfect.

Find it here at the samba.
