The Volkswagen Type 2, known officially (depending on body type) as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus, or, more informally, as the Bus (US) or Camper (UK), was introduced in 1950 by the Volkswagen as its second car model following the Beetle. Like the Beetle, the van has received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the Microbus, Minibus, and, because of its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s, the Hippie Van.
In late 1967, the second generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 (T2) was introduced, built in Germany until 1979. This second-generation Type 2 lost its distinctive split front windshield, and was slightly larger than its predecessor. Its common nicknames are Breadloaf and Bay-window, or Loaf and Bay for short.
In very good condition throughout, this gorgeous example has undergone a thorough health check and service. Offered with 12 months MOT, and fitted with uprated Bilstein suspension, off-road tires, disc brakes and 1600cc engine, this is the perfect ‘Adventure Wagon’!
Interior wise the cabin retains its tidy original Westfalia cabinets and trim, and the turret top roof provides additional standing room, daylight and ventilation, all you need to do is fill the cabinets with your supplies, grab some bedding and you’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
