DeLuxe Wagon
In 1961 (still the T1 or first generation series begun in 1950s) the Typ 2 VW Transporter had a 1192cc motor quoted at 30 horsepower. Of course, the split windshield was part of the package. There's been much debate as to what these vans were actually called. Bus, Microbus, Bully, Vee Dub, Barndoor, Splitscreen, Splittiee, Samba, Hippie Van, Flower Van, Kombi (and Combi), Westy and more. This bus is the Sunroof DeLuxe with 23-windows including those 'in the roof.' And as such this Bus is beautifully restored to perfection. Bus restoration is complex and difficult because of the number of windows and the long sheet steel panels that must be 'wave free' once the rust is removed, all before painting.
