Volkswagen T1 Shorty Pickup Dragster

Drag Race

We've seen a lot of VW bus conversions over the years, but this one has to take the cake.

If you liked the 736-horsepower MkI Volkswagen Golf we brought you the other day, you’re gonna love this. Because while it may only have half the power, it more than makes up for it in other areas of awesomeness. What you’re looking at here is a 1963 Volkswagen T1 that’s been converted not only into a pickup, but also modified for drag racing. It’s a good four feet shorter than standard, making it about the size of a small hatchback, and tuned to deliver 330 horsepower.

Over the course of six years, the owner spent a reported $60,000 to turn his VW into this strip teaser, fitting the 2.2-liter four with new carbs and a Rancho competition gearbox. It’s also got a big rear wing, oversized wheels and a custom interior with DVD player. As we went to press, it had received over a dozen bids on eBay, but had yet to meet its reserve price.
