Volkswagen introduced their ‘Type 2’ (the manufacturer’s second model) in 1950 and production ran in Germany until 1979, when the Type 3 model was introduced. Instantly recognizable to this day, they have achieved something of a cult status, given their widespread use during the ’60s and later, often associated with the surf culture from that decade. The earliest models are referred to as ‘split screen’, referencing the windscreen style and the revised version – introduced in 1967 – the ‘bay-window’, similarly referencing a now altered windscreen design. In addition to this change, the second-generation vehicle was a little larger and heavier than the first variant; had revised suspension; 12-volt electrics and larger, more powerful engine options. In 1972, the flat-four engine was available in an enlarged 1.7 litre size, with a claimed 66 bhp available, driving through a 4-speed, manual transmission. Various cosmetic changes were also introduced in the early 1970’s, such as squared-off bumpers to meet US crash safety standards. This 1973 late ‘bay window’ T2 was first sold as a micro-bus model in Los Angeles in the USA, where it has spent much of its life. In November 2013 it was imported to the UK as a solid, rust-free vehicle and purchased by a Guernsey resident the following year, who commissioned significant refurbishment and conversion work, including the fitment of a new, enlarged (1800 cc) engine and a new day van interior. The vehicle was then sold to a Jersey resident in 2021 and is currently still a Jersey-registered vehicle. The new 1800 cc, twin-carb engine was fitted by specialist Dr V Dub of Portsmouth in 2019. This was at 71,000 miles recorded and the van has only covered a limited mileage since that time. Other mechanical upgrades carried out include: • electronic power steering from Lite-Steer • Red9 Design front wishbone suspension • Vintage Speed exhaust system • engine bay fire extinguisher system and battery isolator from VW Aircooled Works • the van has been fully rewired Starting from a sound basis with a good, imported body shell, the recent refurbishment work included a full respray in Pastel White over Niagara Blue and this remains in very good condition. Fuchs-type alloy wheels have been fitted. The day van interior was fitted by Richard Booth Design, of Burton on Trent and includes an overhead locker. A full width VW Rusty Lee rock’n’roll bed has been installed together with a Mad-Matz cabby-box between the front seats. Kens Customs of Derbyshire renewed or refurbished the upholstery, headlining and dashboard as required. A modern retro-look stereo and MCJ Rosewood steering wheel have also been fitted. The interior of the vehicle is in excellent condition throughout. This is a very smart and tidy day van camper with many quality components fitted by specialist VW suppliers. It is in excellent mechanical condition having covered only a limited mileage since an extensive refurbishment. With automatic transmission and power assisted steering it is a very easy vehicle to drive. The car is currently Jersey registered and we can assist with shipping and importation processes if required. We can ship worldwide.
