This 1967 Volkswagen Type 2 Panel Van’s body work is finished in powder blue with grey vinyl upholstery. The 1st generation of the type 2 was produced from 8 March 1950 through to the end of the 1967 model year. A nut and bolt restoration was carried out on the vehicle including a complete engine and gearbox over all. The Volkswagen type 2 was available as a mini bus, 2 or 4 door pickup and in this body style the panel van.
The early minibus was one of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans popular on today’s roads. Due to its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960’s it still remains iconic for hippies today. The first gen. of the Volkswagen type 2 with the split windshield was informally called the splitscreen or splittie. The Samba or 23 window splittie has become the most sort after, commanding huge prices amongst collectors.
