Currently enjoying its 71st birthday, the much-loved Volkswagen Type 2 has long since acquired cult status courtesy of such celebrity owners as Jamie Oliver, Martin Clunes, Roger Daltry and Jenson Button. It's been home to generations of travelling Australians, helped hippies survive the ' '60s/'70s and been the transport of choice for many a surfer. The original split screen T1 was launched in 1949 and powered by a 1131cc engine producing just 24bhp, however by the end of the 1970’s there was a range of units up to 2-litre available.

This attractive looking T2 camper van is finished in Beige with Blue roof, bumpers, and wheels, with cloth interior. This Type 2 is fitted with the 1584cc with a manual gearbox. Built in 1971 in right-hand drive, it was first registered in the UK in April that year with only six former keepers since and current ownership since 2018. With 35,000 recorded but credible mileage having thought to have been dry-stored for several years, ‘BNG 382J’ was subject to brake recommissioning and fitting of a power steering unit in 2017 costing c.£700. This Danbury camper van still has its camping equipment including fold out bed, stove and hobs, sink and table. Offered with a full UK V5C, car cover, a number of past MOT certificates and a small collection of previous invoices.
