How does an old Volkswagen Single Cab get buried under 3 feet of dirt?

During a Sunday drive, this old single cab was spotted in the foothills just outside of Idaho Falls. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967, and was buried under two-three feet of dirt.

It’s extremely rust free given the circumstances.

It took 45 years to bury this Volkswagen and nearly 2 days to dig it out — This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15 minute video…

This video has helped rescue several abandoned and otherwise forgotten VW’s that may have been left for dead including a very cool 1960 VW Double Cab that we got out of Missouri that had been sitting since 1965. We also recently returned from Mission Viejo, California where we picked up a 1961 SO-23 Westfalia. This bus had been sitting since 1980. We got a tip on that bus after someone saw the Forgotten Single Cab video.
