1951 Tempo Matador is Resigned to Haul

Posted in Collector Cars, Favorite Cars, Trucks, Volkswagen by Dustin Driver | September 2nd, 2010 | Leave a Reply |

This 1951 Tempo Matador is dolefully resigned to haul cargo through the streets of Berlin with nothing more than 25 horsepower. The melancholy little utility truck is built around an air-cooled VW flat four that powers the front wheels. It’s ultra-rare, one of about 10 surviving examples in the world. This one was painstakingly restored to concours-level shine and done up in Weizenbierbrauerei (a defunct German brewery) livery. Its bed was filled with vintage beer bottles from the same brewery. Today it enjoys a lax life, turning heads wherever it trundles. I can’t think of a more fitting retirement for this little gem. Hop on over to Oldbug.com to see more pics and read the story of its restoration.
