Exhumation of a long-buried and forgotten Volkswagen single cab

The YouTube caption: "Took the syncro for a Sunday drive and spotted an old single cab in the foothills outside Idaho Falls. This is nine hours worth of digging condensed into a 15-minute video. It had been sitting in a wash since 1967 [45 years]. It was buried under two feet of dirt but it's extremely rust free given the circumstances. The drop gates hadn't seen the light of day for 45 years."

From the comments on the video: 

Q. What year is this single cab?

A. It is a 1959. Been sitting since 1967.

Unbelievable how it is in almost driveable condition - just put the wheels on and go - after so many years. It must be the dry, sand-like soil that quickly took water in.

I love it when the excavator appears. The driver looks like she says "Hey, look what I found! Why don't we try this?"
