The Volksie Bus has been a part of the backbone of VOLKSWAGEN first introduced the T1 Bus in 1950 with variants of them being People Carriers, Panel Van and Pickup-ups in both Single and Crew Cabs. Volkswagen has carried the principle of build type in the buses until today in the current generation of T7.
Our Crew Cab falls in the T2 family and is a late model Bay Window Crew Cab with a difference. This Kombi has been rebuilt with a 3.0 Ford V6 Engine. This mod was a normal conversation in South Africa in the 80s and was retrofitted to many T3 buses known as the JT3000. On our Crew, this conversion has been done very neatly without cutting large holes or radiators hanging off the front of the vehicle but has been placed underneath with scoops to catch and cool them down. The conversion is great but what it actually does is give you the reliability of a water-cooled engine with torque for days. And there is something sweet about the sound of the engine of the V6 with its twin exhaust system.
This Crew Cab also is a somewhat special design in giving the versatility of carrying your mates around and a light load too. With this bus, the previous owner took a little time to customise it with the black seats and red stitching and this is carried threw on the doors panels, making a pleasant space to be in.
The two-tone paintwork with its light grey and the black top has a real appeal it. To complete the look the windows have a dark tint on them and lastly the load bed has been finished in a wooden lades completing the great look of this vehicle.
We think this is a great vehicle for the everyday workhorse and would be happy at the local beach or car show, but don’t take our word on it, come and see the vehicle for yourself.
Interesting trade-ins will be considered.
