One look at this custom 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon will unleash the adventurer in you. And even if you\'re just on a milk run, it has the style and stance to look like you just came in from an epic journey.
The Vanagon is part of a special heritage. The versatile forward-control style and squared-off look make this instantly reminiscent of the classic VW Type 2 bus/pickup. They may have come after the Summer of Love, but their impression was no longer tied to hippies. Instead, it was a new generation of travelers. Everyone from surfers to campers loved to utilize the adaptable space, and there was even a pickup version sold to other parts of the world. So this custom build delivers an excellent truck for the American adventurer. The custom long bed is great for holding your surfboard and other gear. Or maybe you utilize the custom soft top cover to make an open-air bed for the ideal summer night out in nature. Plus, the tall stance from all-terrain tires, a custom roof rack, liner paint, and a full-size spare on a swing-away mount are all great features for any epic journey you\'re going to take. Even the paint theme feels right. The two-tone brown and tan have a distantly 1980s European feel, and it looks good on the street or trail without making you worry about what may happen if you leave the beaten path.
The interior is also part of this thoughtful custom build. The front half is pure classic Vanagon. A comfy bucket seat, dual-spoke steering wheel, and classic VDO gauges give the driver a commanding view of the open road in this forward-control pickup. There\'s even an easy-to-reach, upgraded AM/FM stereo with USB and Bluetooth. There are also provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing/components to blow cold.) This makes it feel like an easy journeyman, but there\'s also something more. This has a custom extended cab. It includes handy features like a separate passenger-side door and a pop-out rear hatch to the bed. So it\'s great for extra people or a secure place for your gear.
Besides being larger than the old VW Bus, the Vanagon is also desirable for its drivetrain package. The motor is a 1.9-liter fuel-injected flat-four. The motor is mounted low in the body for a low center of gravity, and the weight over the rear driving wheels delivers the same power/traction advantages of the Beetle. It\'s not the kind of powerhouse that wins drag races, but you can feel the smart engineering in its setup. There\'s also a fully independent suspension and the control of a four-speed manual transmission. Add in power steering and front discs for a useful total driving package.
