The most iconic transporter of all time!
Few vehicles, let alone vans or minibuses have gained a bigger “cult status” than the VW T2, affectionately known as “The Bus”. The popularity of the rounded panel van is unbroken, if you want evidence, all you need is one ride on The Bus through any city, anywhere: Wherever you go, you will receive spontaneous expressions of sympathy.
In 1967, the T2 became heir to the T1, the original version of the VW van which had been built for 17 years. The curved, undivided windscreen was the most prominent distinguishing feature of the “new one”. Further changes were the extended body (with wheelbase unaltered), the ball joint front axle and more powerful engines that delivered 47, later up to 70 hp to the rear axle. In Germany, over 2.5 million T2 were produced until 1979, as panel van, station wagon, flatbed, double cab, van or camper. In Mexico and Brazil, the popular Van with its pleasing shape continued to roll off the line for decades longer, with production ending as late as 2013 – by which time the “local” T2 had long since matured to classic cars.
