  • Vw 1977 pick up single cab barn find

    Hi, I have recently acquired this VW Pick Up 1977 Single Cab. It is still in the shed where it has resided for 27 years . I would appreciate any comments on the photos. I managed to take a couple of photos underneath and i am interested in yer thoughts on what lies ahead of me.
    the internal cab seems good and hopefully i will not have to replace anything.

    First thought is jealousy. I missed out on one just like it a few years ago.
    If I were you I'd only do mechanicals and leave the body as it is.
    Like most commercial vehicles in the 70's/80's it probably had a hard life but it looks all together from those pics.
    Good luck with it!

      I passed an early SC in a garden last week. Rez, do you want the location?
      I believe in angles. Δ

              Pulled her out of shed this evening. It doesnt look as bad as i thought . Mechanic is going to try and start engine for me , put on some tyres and fix brakes and make sure steering is good. will see then how much i will do with it. Engine or something leaking oil towards the rear.
              I am a member of the NSU Club Ireland and have a lot of NSU Quickly's and will use the pick up to take them to shows.
              I will need to get a canvas done like the original type. Does anyone know anyone in Ireland that might do such a thing?.
              Is there any diagram anywhere of the dimensions to ensure it is reasonably like the original?.
              Anyone with secondhand parts ? Hub caps ,tail lights , maybe wheels , not sure how good or bad they are.

                  Donal Dollery in Limerick has a single cab pickup with the top hoops and canvas. You could ask him about how it was bought or made.

                        That's a cool idea to use it for your NSUs. Can't wait to see that.

                            Go to www.nlavw.com They stock steel hoop frame sets & canvas. (You might need deep pockets however!)

                              Thanks . I saw them on ebay. I will try a couple of irish suppliers to see what they say.
