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 and heavier than its predecessor. Its common nicknames are Breadloaf and Bay-window, or Loaf and Bay for short.
This 1972 Camper has been converted into a commercial coffee-making bus, fitted with an Astoria Perla coffee machine, water heater, water filter/softener, mazza coffee grinder, Clarke generator, fold-out counter, tables, chairs and all crockery and utensils.
With a recent full engine service and attention to the brakes, and finished in a super-cool and striking 1970s colour scheme, the VW is ready to earn its living at various festivals and other events over the summer months.
