In March of 1950, Volkswagen introduced the Type 2 Microbus as a follow-up to the hugely successful first production model, the well-loved Type 1 Beetle. Originally designed with the commercial market in mind, the Type 2—known variously as the Transporter, Kombi, or Microbus—was built in a wide range of body styles, with each offering an innovative way to transport cargo and passengers in a convenient, car-sized package. Key to this was its “forward control” layout, which placed the driver over the front wheels. Though not necessarily the first to use such a format, the Volkswagen Type 2 helped popularize it. The Type 2’s rear-drive, rear-engine chassis was derived from the Beetle, along with its horizontally opposed air-cooled four-cylinder engine.

In 1967, the platform was updated and designated “T2.” Lengthened by nine inches and featuring a single-piece curved windscreen, the “Breadloaf,” as it came to be known, also received a revised suspension that eliminated the drawbacks of the earlier model’s swing axle. Beginning in 1972, the vans were offered with automatic transmissions and over the course of the 1970s, the engines were modernized, eventually receiving fuel injection.

This Type 2 Westfalia Campmobile 70 is said to have been restored to factory specifications in the late Nineties and received a bare-metal respray to its current shade of white. As shown on the trim tag, the bus features the Westfalia pop-up roof (073), detachable headrests, (507) vent wings in cab

Doors (507), no compressor for the folding spare tire (583), and the Westfalia Campmobile interior (P22). Perfect for road trips or event camping, the van features charming plaid upholstery with Westfalia woodgrain cabinetry and fold-out tables, a factory pop-up roof, fold-out bed, mini-fridge, sink, and 110-volt outlets. In addition, the dashboard features a Kenwood cassette stereo and a CD-changer controller on the steering column. In preparation for the sale, the owner had the vehicle inspected to resolve any apparent issues and improve functionality. This work included a mechanical inspection with fluid service and adjusting the fuel system. An invoice detailing the work is included.

Well preserved and charmingly outfitted with highly desirable Westfalia factory options, this is an excellent, restored example of Volkswagen’s coveted vintage camper van, ideal for the discerning Westfalia enthusiast or any adventure seeker.
