2000 Skoda Felicia Fun Pick-up
Desirable example showing just 53,454 miles with hard-to find and valuable Truckman rear canopy; lowered suspension
Dating from August 2000, this versatile Skoda Felicia Fun pick-up is of course, finished in yellow with half yellow leather interior and a pair of hidden, fold out rear seats – ideal for kids and summer use.
Under the bonnet, we find the 74bhp 1.6-litre 8-valve Mpi engine offered in the ‘Fun’ variant, driving the front wheels via 5-speed manual transmission.
Perceived as a ‘Lifestyle’ choice, the Felicia Pick-up was a little outside of VW’s usual thinking at the time, with a limited run of 3,000 planned for the UK, however so popular was it, that 4,000 ended up being sold here.
This example comes to us from an enthusiast of this model, the other example in the sale also hailing from the same source in Scotland and both are in a similar state with similarly low mileages.
Showing just 53,454 miles the pick-up features the desirable Truckman rear load area cover although the rear window is missing. Requiring a degree of cosmetic improvement, the truck could be used ‘as is’ or improved cosmetically to really become something special. Riding on its original wheels, we note the vehicle has been lowered giving it improved stance and presence although the ride is likely to be firmer than normal, but nothing a set of stock springs wont likely sort out if its not your thing.
The history file includes the V5C showing six former keepers and an MOT valid until 28th May 2022 recording three advisories - two brake pipes corroded or covered in grease/other material and a third for corrosion to the inner arch near the suspension mounting point. There are an impressive 17 old MOTs which support the lower mileage, handbook, period sales media, info on the aftermarket tonneau covers and a host of invoices for parts and maintenance dating back to 2004. It had a new battery in Nov-21, timing belt change and new exhaust in April 2012 at 22,873 miles and its most recently documented oil change and rocker cover gasket in August 2015.
Lots of Fun potential for sure and an interesting investment given what these oddities have been making in recent times it looks an enticing prospect.
