I would not recommend a VW. Those are not that easy to rebuild, but there are plentiful parts to be found.
Find you something with a Gen1 Chevy V8 engine in it and go from there. There should be plenty of cheap trucks out there with 350s or 305s. Ford's are not bad either, but you'll have to get used to non-adjustable valve trains on most. The same goes for ChryCo V8s where you have the bonus of shaft mount rockers until the 90's, but mostly non-adjustable with hydraulic lifters. Solid lifter engines have adjustments, but not hydraulics.
