The Volkswagen Type 2 was to make its debut in 1950 being initially based on the early Beetle model.  Simple and rugged, the vehicle was to prove its worth in terms of reliability and longevity and, before long, numerous permutations were available.  During the 1960s, the Type 2 Combi was to become synonymous with the hippy movement, particularly in the U.S. where examples were frequently painted in psychedelic colour schemes and kitted out to provide living accommodation.  They were a frequent sight at rock festivals and concerts throughout, in recent times, celebrity ownership has raised the profile of these characterful vehicles and the split-screen models in all their different guises are especially loved, good examples being keenly sought.

Imported into the UK in 2009, this much loved Volkswagen has been enjoyed and used regularly by the vendor. Mechanically, this is a very well sorted example and cosmetically she has been continually worked on and as such presents in good order. The red and white interior is both striking and practical for those long days at the beach. This lefthand drive 'tin-top splittie' sits proudly on Porsche Fuchs alloy wheels offering a comfortable and smooth ride. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 6th September 2017, with summer just around the corner, this is a vehicle that will put a smile on your face.
