VW T1 (Type 2) box van 'UPS'

Hard to believe: UPS drove the VW T1 in the USA

While in Germany the postal delivery service continued to be a sovereign task performed by the Deutsche Bundespost, in the USA, parcel delivery services had long since been privatised. United Parcel Service relied on the VW T1 (Type 2) as early as the 1950s. The dark brown box van miniaturised by WIKING already bore the golden lettering of UPS.


The early days of private package delivery

Two-part body and wheel rims dark brown. Chassis with steering wheel and bumpers in black. Inserted transparent headlamps. Interior with bench seat at front and box van appearance at rear mouse grey. Front VW logo imprinted black, side golden yellow ornamental strips and United Parcel Service lettering. Door handles painted silver. Tail lights red. Hatch handle and tail lights silver.
