THE VOLKSWAGEN TYPE 2
As readily recognizable as the immortal 'Beetle' itself and a 'cult' vehicle in its own right, the Volkswagen Type 2 and its derivatives enjoyed an even longer period in production than their saloon progenitor. The original was conceived in the late 1940s by a Dutch Volkswagen agent, Ben Pon, who drew up plans for a van based on the Beetle floor pan and running gear. Known as the Volkswagen Type 2 (the Beetle saloon being Type 1) the result of Pon's efforts arrived in 1950 and almost immediately proliferated into a bewildering variety of models catering for an enormous range of commercial and domestic activities.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This 1962 Volkswagen Dual Cab Transporter is being offered after benefitting from a thorough 3 year restoration. When purchased by the current owner in 2012, it was decided that this rare bus deserved a comprehensive restoration, contracting CF Automotive in Costa Mesa, Ca. for the task.
Bringing the body of this dual cab transporter down to bare metal, the original cab received all of the necessary repairs before being painted Sealing Wax Red. During restoration, the original engine block was found to be cracked, so a new block, stamped 2031CF, was sourced and built up to 1800 cc specification. This engine still retains some of the original engine's components, while the transmission that came in the bus was worthy of a simply rebuild to be recommissioned.
Looking toward the interior, Sew Fine Upholstery in Albuquerque, NM was trusted to trim this bus. Finished in white vinyl, the original seat frames and hardware were reskinned and the interior now presents beautifully in contrast to the body color. Other original components to this bus include the Bumpers and dash, while the safari windows, roof rack, and chrome trim came from an EOM resource out of the UK, keeping this bus true to how it could have been modified in period. With fewer than 500 miles put on the car since restoration, this rarely seen Dual Cab Transporter is guaranteed to be provide years of unique motoring to its new owner.Contact Seller »
