Teijo 24, Volkswagen Basistransporter EA489
If you are a VW-enthusiast or collector you probably know about the Volkswagen Basistransporter EA489 which is a really rare car produced in very low numbers. BUT you have probably not heard about this car which is actually 10 times or more rare than the Basistransporter! This is the TEIJO 24 pick-up van, produced in ONLY 150-200 examples (!!), based on the Volkswagen Basistransporter EA489. The car was branded as TEIJO in Finland, produced by WIHURI which at the time was the official Volkswagen importer in Finland. The Teijo pick-up was made in cooperation with Volkswagen, supplying the Teijos with chassis and all the technical equipment such as engine, gearbox, instruments etc. The cockpit and flatbed were designed and made in Finland to better suit the Finnish market. The TEIJO was designed to be an affordable simple pick-up van, produced from 1974-1976. The car is so rare that many VW-enthusiasts don’t know about the TEIJO which has a special place in the history of Volkswagen. The production started in 1974 by making the twelve first ones which were prototypes/testing vehicles. This particular vehicle is number ten, and has a double seat on the passenger side instead of the two simple seats (one driver and one passenger) which the Teijos regularly had. Meaning this is one of the very special proto/testing vehicles, number 10 out of 12. The car is in good working condition and passed the annual inspection in May 2020 without any problems. Flatbed has recently been nicely renovated with new wood etc.
This is a unique chance for VW-collector to get something really special to the collection. There is not many left of the total 150-200 pieces ever made!
The producer WIHURI, has been a sponsor for the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team driver Valtteri Bottas.
