The revolutionary Volkswagen T2 informally known as Bus, Kombi, Camper (U.K.) or Bullí (Germany) goes way back to March 8th of 1950 in a Volkswagen plant in West Germany. Designed by a Dutch Beetle importer Ben Pon, it changed the way the world would look at cars. Volkswagen’s marketing approach for the new product line was an extension of its advertising for the Beetle: promote its simple styling and usefulness as a vehicle for home, work and play.

Offering a roomy interior to transport all sorts of goods and more space for the entire family. With a rear wheel drive and an air cooled engine it made the car easy to operate and maintain. 

In the following years the Kombi would become an icon for all people, almost as soon as it rolled off the assembly line, owners began adapting the Microbus to their own needs. Soon, it was being used as a camper by outdoor enthusiasts who outfitted it with beds, sinks and more.

This lead for it to become a symbol for counterculture types, who wanted to stand out from the rest of crowd. Some owners painted peace signs on the Microbus, earning it the nickname “hippie bus.”

So if you are looking for a VW Bus whether it’s for a classic Sunday joy ride vehicle or if you are reminiscing about the good old days growing up and want to have a piece of the era in your driveway, this is the T2 you’re looking for ! It has been restored but it still has plenty of room to customize to your personal preference.
