Vehicle Description

Did you read about Daniel Norris, baseball star and millionaire, who lives in a VW T2 camper van all year round? You needn’t be prepared to go as far as that, but these classic VW campers certainly have a type of appeal that is captivating, almost addictive.
Here, a charming T2a Westfalia is coming up for sale – and a bus that has been places: Originally delivered to the US, the camper was imported to England and has now arrived in the country where it was built, some 46 years ago. Hasn’t time flown? In the back, it still has its 1.6 litre boxer engine installed, which today, same es ever, produces no more than 35 kW (47 hp) of power. What’s the rush?
There is truth in the old adage that time and tide wait for no man. And for no van, either. This one for sure makes a sympathetic appearance, but when taking a closer look at its condition, it becomes evident that a lot remains to be done, both at the body, as well as the mechanical parts, including undercarriage, suspension and steering, which is why this bus is being offered as a restoration project. If you’ve been dreaming of doing up one of these ageless beauties, this may present the perfect starting point for your very own, personal VW Westfalia love story.


The classic Volkswagen Bus – more precisely the type 2. Germany’s biggest export right after the VW Beetle.
There were two and a half generations of the Bus. The T2a variant was built from 1967 until 1971, the hybrid model T2a / b until 1972 and the T2b until 1979.

Westfalia had already made itself a name since 1951 with camping equipment for the T1 (the “camping box”). Since Volkswagen took variations into their VW T2 portfolio, Westfalia furnishings were very popular and widespread.
The model range varied over the years. From year 1969 on, the equipment got named after cities in addition to the number designations. From 1972 to 1973, versions for the US market got their names from cities in the United States.

Just a few minutes behind the wheel of a T2-Bullis and you feel again like 30 years ago. Portugal, Ireland, Italy, a rainy birthday with sparklers in the Tuscan hills – how long ago was that?
