This 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 Bus is a great classic that became an icon thanks to both style and function. So while we all have fond memories of where we were when we saw our first Bus, the next owner also gets to discover how great they are to still use today.
This is a legend on wheels. One of the reasons for such an enduring presence is that VW really knew how to make these look great. The green and white seen here carries that tradition quite well. More than just a two-tone, the colors are intertwined nicely as the white bumpers and steel wheels complement the roof section. And for the right collector, you'll appreciate the high degree of originality in the details, including most of the trim and glass.
You see more of the original-style presentation when you open the door. The front seats, steering wheel, and VDO gauges are pure classic VW. Even an era-correct AM/FM radio is still on display. These second-generation Type 2 Buses were nicknamed “bread vans” for their distinct shape that maximized interior space. That's why they make such great place to be a home away from home. Side vent windows and an open middle section suggest this one is on its way to be fully enjoyed at the campsite.
The engine is Volkswagen's famous flat-four unit. While you already know how virtually bulletproof that powerplant is, as you look at the pictures of this 1600cc unit, you can see there have been plenty of recent quality investments. The four-speed manual transmission is believed to have a new linkage, and so it has a crisp action that allows you to take full control of the motor. Plus, owning a later second-generation Type 2 has its benefits out on the road, including an improved suspension and the stopping power of front disc brakes.
This is the icon that has you dreaming of the open road, and at this affordable price, it's hard not to answer the call. Call now!
