Volkswagen's T2 (Transporter/Kombi/Bulli) or "Volksiebus" to call it by its South African nickname is undoubtedly an iconic machine, one that is associated with the spirit of adventure, free love and, of course, surf culture.
First introduced in 1967, the second-generation had tough act to follow - the original split-window T2 is a highly prized collector's piece these days - but it certainly moved the "transporter" game forwards. Easier and more cost-effective to built, it also introduced a number of safety (front disc brakes)- and comfort-enhancing features.
This particular T2 started out life as a 1971 Delux model but has been transformed into a '70s Surfing Culture bus, while retaining many of its original features (two interior lights, fold-out floor-board, chrome beading).
The motor has been upgraded to a newer 2,0-litre unit, giving the vehicle ample power to cruise the open roads at a comfortable speed of 120kph. Webber 36mm down-draft carbs have been fitted with a Monza free-flow exhaust system.
Furthermore, disc brakes have been added at the rear and a MP4 quick shifter has been fitted to the original 4-speed transmission. Porsche-style 17-inch Fuchs wheels are fitted, but the original wheels and hubcaps are included in the sale.
All the window rubbers, door rubbers etc. are brand new. The vehicle has been professionally resprayed and is 100 per cent rust free. The interior and carpet trimmings are all brand new and blend in perfectly with the retro look. This Kombi is also fitted with a roof rack and a tow bar. Ready to go!
