    I've always preferred the 600 over the 500. That car can fit right behind a couch. Maybe you could sneak it in?

    Photoss of the 600 bring back a lot of wonderful memories. I've owned several over the years. When we toured Sicily in 2017 my son and I ( a couple of Syracuse NY natives) found ourselves in Siracusa Sicily for a few days and came across an Italian wedding being held at the Grand Piazza Duomo

    Check out the attached photo of the wedding getaway car ! Those Italians really know how to love !

    I like the 600 Multipi better. More desirable, a collectors vehicle. Some mint ones going for over $100k. On the auction block.

    Indeed! I like it too. A sheep in goats clothing.....lol. Can you imagine, a 6 passenger vehicle with a 24 horsepower engine? That's a whopping 4 horsepower per passenger before pulling along its own weight. Still they did the job and were used as taxicabs in Italy for many years. Surprisingly enough, you can still find a few of them collecting rust behind someones barn if you look hard enough. Well worth a restortion effort at $100K, eh?

    Barrett Jackson, in Arizona had one cross the auction block. Over $100K.

    What was the horse power, of the first VW, micro buses?

    I'm not all that knowledgeable about the early VWs but according to Wikipedia, the type2 buis was first introduced in 1947 and carried a flat 4 engine with 24 horsepower.. Here's a link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Type_2

    I guess that makes the Fiat with 28 Horses a raging powerhouse!

    First VW micro bus was a 6volt system with the same engine as the beetle which was a whopping 36. It did not get the pancake 4 until 67/68 when it went to 12 volt.

    I had always been under the impression that the VW type 1 had always had the air cooled flat 4. If not the flat 4, what engine did the first VWs have?

    Us Fiat guys never paid too much attention to VW's. Haha, just kidding.

    It is still a flat 4, it is just how the cooling setup is. The beetle/type 1 has the vertical cooling shroud/fan thing and the later bus engines have the fan laying down like a Corvair.

    I remember when I worked at my first VW dealership almost 40 years ago. I was a service writer and one of the jobs I had was to do quality control on the mechanics work. The first bus I drove was an eye opening experience. I was used to Fiats and their great handling, power and brakes. This brand new bus was all over the road and not a "road burner" by any means.

    As I got older I started liking the old VW stuff more and more. My favorite would probably be this:
