Known officially as the Volkswagen Type 2 and depending on body
type. either as a Transporter. Kombi or Microbus. this VW was also
known informally as the Bus in the US and Camper in the UK.
Introduced in 1950 as Volkswagen's second car model. it was derived
from their first. the Beetle. which was designated the Type 1. This
second-generation Type 2 lost its distinctive split front
windscreen and was slightly larger and considerably heavier than
its predecessor. Its common nickname is 'Bay-window' or Bay for
short. The new model also did away with the swing axle rear
suspension and transfer boxes previously used to raise ride height.
Instead. half-shafts were fitted with constant velocity joints. The
updated Bus transaxle is usually sought after by off-road racers
using air-cooled Volkswagen components. Brazil contained the last
factory in the world that produced the T2. Production in Brazil
ceased on 31st December 2013 due to the introduction of more
stringent safety regulations. thus marking the end of an era with
the rear-engine Volkswagens which first originated in 1935.

Finished in blue and white. this lefthand drive 'Tintop'
Campervan drives and presents in good order throughout. The
interior is in good condition with the necessary level of comfort
expected of such a vehicle. We are advised WWE 160S drives well and
has had a fairly recent engine rebuild.

Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a full
year's MoT test certificate. this Volkswagen looks very
attractively estimated and is the perfect vehicle for the upcoming
summer.
