How can we defend having a Ratty Rescue feature cost more than our Find of the Day ? Well, first this is a rat rod. Rat is literally in the name . Second, it’s a Type 2, which we’ve seen can cost over $100,000 (contingent on the correct number of windows and Jerry Seinfeld having owned it). By that measure, this costs less of its potential value than Monday’s did.

Have I convinced you? Of course I have. And, anyway, options for a pickup with a VW badge on the front of it are limited and today’s ratty Caddy offerings were limited at best. So here we are with this, I think we can agree, very cool car that someone should rescue if not you.

This particular Type 2 left the factory in 1962 and maintains its dual treasure chests and the correct humpback seat. It’s powered by a 1641cc engine built by Jim’s VW and it has Viair 444 dual compressors.

According to the seller, all the mechanicals are brand new and it has disc brakes up front, so no need to worry about slowing it down.

And just look at that split window and the towel rack bumper and tell me you don’t want to rescue this rat rod. I think you should. And you could, for just $22,222 and a quick trip to Ohio. Doesn’t that sound nice? Alright, so it’s agreed, you’re buying this. Holy ****, I'm so excited for you! Congratulations!
