    • ModelT25 Campervan
    • FE Cat descHaving inspired a generation, a movement and a musical era, the Type 25 carried on from where the original Volkswagen Camper began in the late 1960's. The Volkswagen Type 2 (T3), also known as the T25 or Vanagon in the United States, was one of the last new Volkswagen platforms to use an air-cooled engine, succeeded by a water-cooled boxer engine from 1983. The third generation of the Volkswagen Transporter marketed under various nameplates worldwide was larger and heavier than its predecessor, the T2, with a more squared and less rounded styling and manufactured in Germany from 1979 until 1990. Many summers have been spent enjoying festivals, beaches and travelling the world in VW campervans, and to this day they remain the most popular, some would say 'cool' small campers despite fierce competition from almost every other car manufacturer trying to muscle in.

    • ModelT2 Kombi (Splitscreen)
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION The Volkswagen Type 2 was introduced in 1950 as a multi-variant utility vehicle, known as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus (depending on body type), and was devised as an evolution of the Volkswagen Type 1, the original Beetle. The first generation of these versatile vehicles (named the T1) was produced with distinctive split-screens from 1950 until 1967. Only two models were originally offered, the Kombi and the Commercial, the Microbus was added in May 1950, and was joined by the Deluxe Microbus in June 1951. The Deluxe Microbus (known as the ‘Sunroof Deluxe' in America) was the most luxurious version of the Volkswagen Transporter T1. The Deluxe model featured eight rear side windows and two rear corner windows, making it the '15-window' but was not available in Europe. Meanwhile, the European-market Deluxe Microbus, with its additional eight small skylight windows is, accordingly, the '23-window'. From the 1964 model year with its wider rear door, the rear corner windows were discontinued, making the latter two, the 13-window and 21-window respectively. The 23 and later 21 window variants each carry the famous nickname 'Samba' and are particularly revered. Manufactured on 27th March 1958 and delivered to New Zealand, this Volkswagen was imported into the UK in 2016. The condition of this Kombi can only be described as exceptional and being in righthand drive format is an ideal fun vehicle to take to the beach. We are advised the 1600cc engine runs well, these vehicles are simple in their make-up and are easy to maintain for a competent home mechanic. Supplied with a V5C registration document this Volkswagen is finished in the striking colour combination of orange and white two-tone coachwork with grey interior.
