Model information

1965 Type 2 Splitscreen


This is my 1965 Split Screen Double Cab or Crewcab if you prefer. It spent most of its life in the US  around Texas and Nevada but other than that I know very little about its early life. It was imported to the UK 10 years ago before making its way to Northern Ireland where I purchased it last in 2017.

I’m guessing the logos were added in the US before it came over. In the UK it was used briefly by a gardening company and the canvas had seen better days. They had also cut the hoops down to the same height as the roof. I sourced a replacement canvas in the UK earlier this year and reinstated the hoops to stock height. The engine is a 1600 single port rebuilt by Bugbitz last year.
