For sale; VW Wide bed pick up Type 261 M code 200

Here’s a really weird creature from the VW stables…

1964 build Metal wide bed single cab pick up. M code 200.

2015-06-24 17.00.28_blog The weird thing about wide pick up is that this special model (M code 200) is build in the VW factory) no other special models where build inside the factory but always by coachbuilders outside the VW plant. Cherrypickers where build by Ruthmann, wooden wide bed conversions by Westfalia, laddertrucks by Mayer Hagen, campers by Westfalia and so on, but metal wide bed pick ups been built inside the VW factory.

2015-06-24 17.01.20_blog This pick up was restored but not in the perfect way, let’s call it a cheap restoration, this reflects the price, the car drives and brakes like it should.¬†It will be difficult to find a comparable driveable pick up for our asking price, let stand alone a special model.
