This 1992 Volkswagen Type 2 Kombi/Bus is one of the coolest road
trip machines you can get your hands on right now. It's a restored
Brazilian import that has been thoroughly upgraded to deliver all
the best comforts of home in one of the most iconic packages
South America kept many VW traditions alive longer than even
Germany did. This is the kind of vehicle that gets to blend some of
your favorite elements of the Type 2 Bus. The flat front end is the
later bread van look, and the great body lines and smooth paint
keep the crisp and clean look going from every angle. Of course,
the full window treatment, including the wraparound rear ones, has
the look of those first-gen surf wagons. And as you look through
the full package, you can see this is the perfect machine to go
camp out at the beach. It shows this live-in ready attitude with
the roof that has solar panels, a Climatizar air box, and water
storage. But not everyone is going to take note of what's on top
because the sides are already so interesting. The bright teal paint
and white two-tone has a bright look of a cheery cruiser. And
there's a great detailed style with a full yellow stripe as a
dividing line and the bumpers and grille painted to coordinate with
the theme. The wheels even carry the two-tone style. The full
package has a driver-ready style that makes it easy to hop in on a
whim no matter if it's just a day at the car show or a trip across
The interior starts with a driver's area that's a good mix of retro
and new. You get a classic VDO gauge package with the speedometer
in kilometers and a grippy dual-spoke steering wheel. But there are
also cool upgrades like the tall shifter and bucket seats with
modern bolstering for all-day comfort. Plus, the radio is now an
AM/FM unit with Bluetooth. But where this really impresses in the
back. This one has a true personal feeling with a beautifully
crafted wood theme that's on the roof, sides, and countertop. It
can make any roadside feel like a vacation cabin. There are nice
details, like custom cabinetry, working outlets, and a full LED
lighting package. It's a full camp-ready package with a built-in
sink, a refrigerator, a slide-out stove, and a bench seat that
folds into a bed.
Under the rear hatch is the famous air-cooled flat-four powerplant.
The 1600cc motor is a dual carb unit, and it has the fresh and
clean look you want in a well-invested and hardy VW van. These were
never meant to be speed demons, but it does have the right upgrades
for a confident feeling going down the road. The upgraded shifter
has a crisp action for the four-speed, there are good modern
cruising tires, and the braking system is a powered setup with
This is a beautiful Bus with a unique sense of style. You can
comfortably take it to more places, and attract extra attention
wherever you arrive. So it makes for a terrific classic to enjoy.
