This gleaming white VW T2b Transporter is 40 years old!
It is equipped with the 1.8-liter four-cylinder boxer engine and produces 50 kW (68 hp.) Unwarranted milage is around 53,000 miles which should be authentic according to the previous owner. The vehicle had three American owners before returning to Germany in 2014. The last owner restored it extensively and consequently it presents itself virtually rust free and in very good overall condition.
Here is a short selection of work carried out: seats upholstered and recovered in blue and white leatherette, door trim and dashboard renewed, rubber seals replaced on all windows, new carpet, etc. Recently also the tyres were replaced.
Documentation includes among other things the original invoice. German registration (TÜV to 10/2016) and historic plates.
There is a current Classic Data appraisal of € 21,000.- (condition: 2).
Such cars are rare and this is a real eye-catcher!
The engine power increases up to 70 hp, flatter engines enlarge the loading space, for the first time an automatic transmission is available on demand.
Launched in 1972 the T2b differs from T2a by the upper front indicators and box-shaped bumpers. The higher, rectangular rear lights, larger air intakes and flared wheel arches at the rear were already part of the facelift in 1971.
