This 1996 Volkswagen Type 2 13-Window Camper is for the true adventurer. After all, you get a lot of the classic VW camper fun but in a younger package with plenty of fresher investments. So this is the one that delivers the feeling that lives up to your daydreams, but in a package that's easy to enjoy in real life.
We like a South American VW Bus like this. They were able to incorporate some of the best early Type 2 features into the more efficient Breadvan design. It's basically like they used an icon to create an icon. That's why this is unmistakably a Type 2, and yet, it's also something distinct even in a crowd of VWs. And this one is done right with a high-gloss green paint that shows off the quality of the body panels. Bright chrome trim, fresh weather-stripping, and clean wheel wells all signal that this is a quality restoration. We especially like the white paint. It looks good on the roof, wheels, and bumpers. Plus, it coordinates with fun details like the white Hella light covers in front and the white curtains in all of the side windows. There are even thoughtful little things, like how the red in the curtain holders coordinates with the red canvas sunroof. And not only will you love the look of the vintage roof rack, but the sale also comes with a coordinating aluminum and wood side ladder. So if you do take this one to a campground, you may need to park a little further away for privacy because this detailed Bus attracts plenty of attention.
The interior has a fresh look done in a bright and clean beige. The hint of red you saw on the outside also works inside. It's on the dash pad, carpet piping, seat belts, and seat piping for a thoughtful and uniform style throughout this VW. The front offers a wide spit bench that gives the driver individual bucket-like comfort. The driver also gets a Jay Matt sports steering wheel ( a nice Brazilian piece), a shoulder seatbelt, and an upgraded four-speed shifter with a confident mechanical action. So it feels like a road-ready journeyman, and what's behind the front seats confirms this is ready for a road trip. This is a proper camper setup where the rear is a living room and kitchen thanks to a center table (removable), wood flooring, extra storage, comfy seating, and a sink basin. And yes, the rear seat folds flat into a bed. So you can just imagine opening up the large roof and laying down to see a starry night sky.
The rear hatch shows off an exceptionally clean powerhouse, which is a reminder that they paid attention to every inch of this VW during its restoration. It's a 1600cc motor that runs with the eager and hardy nature you want in a well-kept Volkswagen. As you look underneath this Type 2, you can see a fresh and clean suspension, which gives you the right confidence to hit the road. That's also why you have good cruising features like power brakes, front discs, and modern touring tires.
This is the kind of setup that would be extra comfortable for an afternoon at the car show or you could even hit the road and wander for days at a time. So if you're looking to turn heads on journeys near and far, call today!
