Recent No Expenses Spared Restoration
The first generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 with the split windshield, informally called the Microbus, Splitscreen, or Splittie among modern fans, was produced from 8 March 1950 through the end of the 1967 model year.
The early versions of the T1 until 1955 were often called the “Barndoor” (retrospectively called T1a since the 1990s), owing to the enormous rear engine cover, while the later versions with a slightly modified body (the roofline above the windshield is extended), smaller engine bay, and 15” road wheels instead of the original 16” ones are nowadays called the T1b (again, only called this since the 1990s, based on VW’s retrospective T1,2,3,4 etc. naming system.). From the 1964 model year, when the rear door was made wider (same as on the bay-window or T2), the vehicle could be referred to as the T1c. 1964 also saw the introduction of an optional sliding door for the passenger/cargo area instead of the outwardly hinged doors typical of cargo vans.
This beautiful 1964 T1 Panel Van has just enjoyed a no expenses spared full body-off restoration, and is finished in the period shade of Perlweiss (L87). During the restoration the motor was also rebuilt, as was the gearbox and other mechanical components.
If you are looking for an original Volkswagen T1 in as new condition, then this fabulous example surely must be at the top of your list. The T1 will be offered with a US title and EU Taxes paid.
