Volkswagen Truck with a Ford V8


Volkswagen created this 1981 VW Caddy Sportruck by essentially taking a Golf MK1 and sticking a bed on it. Because of this it came with a small 1.5-1.8 L engine and FWD. The owner of this particular Caddy converted it to RWD and installed a much larger Ford Triton 5.4 L V8. The transmission is a manual five-speed connected to a Mustang rear end. The front suspension is adjustable coilovers while the back is a four-link. This truck really seems to have been built to enjoy driving it. For more info and pictures click the source link below.

  1. thanks for the post!
    yeah the suspension is extremeley stiff, makes for a pretty tough ride over long distances. luckily the seats are really comfortable so in the end it kind of balances out!

  2. I am inspired I know have found the perfect project for myself ive been contemplating many different options and this is just sheer beauty
