THE TYPE 2 CAMPER

Although not as ubiquitous as the iconic Type 1 Volkswagen Käfer (Beetle), the Type 2 Transporter took on far more divergent identities. The Type 2 concept is credited to the Dutch importer, Ben Pon. His first sketches date from 1947, but production had to wait until March 1950, as VW caught up with demand for the basic Beetle. Starting in 1951, VW offered an officially-sanctioned camper conversion by Westfalia-werke of Franz Knöbel & Söhne in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany. Built as a van, both with and without rear side windows, it came also as a pickup or a fully equipped camper, and countless aftermarket conversions were created as hearses, ambulances, police vans and use in the fire service. During the 1960s, the Kombi version, a window van with removable seats, became the transportation of choice for America's hippies, often with psychedelic paint themes.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The Oldenburg Family acquired this bus at public auction in 2006 and it has been a fun part of the collection ever since. The VW had found itself useful on occasion being taken to football games for tailgate parties, road trips and the camping for which it was intended! It was always much admired by onlookers...

Prior to its acquisition, it had been freshly restored by Hector Valdez, a noted San Diego restorer, to an exceptionally high standard following standard external A42 designation specifications with the supplement of a full interior camping package which included internal accessories such as a stove, sink, seats and fold down bed.
The color choice is a period hue of ivory with contrasting tan and light wood interior finishes. Its maintenance inhouse in the collection has included a complete overhaul of the brake system, attention to the ignition system and the carburetors rebuilt in 2015.

With the arrival of a new I.D. Buzz Concept, a modern electric 'camper', the relevance and appeal of Volkswagen's vans is even more endorsed as an automotive icon. This generation and the '67 year versions as the first of the 12volt vehicles, in particular, are sure to be covetable for the foreseeable future!
