1966 Volkswagen Type 265 Double Cab Pickup
Volkswagen transporters became popular in the American market due to their unusual rear-engine design and small size compared to American trucks and vans. The Type 265 (a designation that denotes its double-cab configuration) features bed sides and a tailgate that fold down for easy loading of cargo weighing up to 2,073 pounds, its approximate curb weight. This Double Cab pickup was purchased new in Newport Beach and saw service as a transporter of surfing and band equipment prior to a decade-long restoration using only NOS (new-old–stock) parts.
