the fridolin

I’ve been in love with these cars the first time I ever set eyes on one at a quirky Volkswagen show. The German Postal Services commissioned Volkswagen to build them a truck for their mail delivery in the early sixties. Today very little of the original trucks exist in a drivable state. The Type 147 Kleinlieferwagen, better known as the Fridolin, predates the ultra boxy cars of today’s Scion and Honda models.
