Volkswagen EA489 Basistransporter
The Volkswagen EA489 Basistransporter was a small front-wheel drive platform truck with a front-mounted Volkswagen air-cooled engine. Created by Volkswagen AG, It was about the size of a modern day Volkswagen Polo and is perhaps one of the rarest Volkswagens in the world due to the fact it was never sold in a developed country. It was built between 1975 and 1979, with only 2,600 units produced in completely knocked down kits in Hanover, Germany; and 3,600 units were produced in Puebla, Mexico, between 1977 and 1979 for the Mexican market where it was known as the Hormiga. It was evaluated for production in the following countries: Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey and Mexico. It was built and sold in Turkey as the EA489, in the Philippines as the Trakbayan, in Indonesia as the Mitra, and in Mexico as the Hormiga. The Indonesian Mitra, built by P.T. Garuda Mataram Motor Company in Jakarta, featured the cowl of a Volkswagen Type 2. A number of bodystyles, ranging from a naked cowl to an ambulance, were available. The Mitra's T2b body featured a front mounted grille and the pickup variations featured a bed more distinctly separated than the beds of its T2 cousins. A 93 km/h top speed was promised.
