We have for sale a 1974 ‘late bay’ T2 VW Camper Van with low miles in beautiful condition.


The Volkswagen Type 2 first appeared in 1950s as a forward control light commercial vehicle. As one of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans the Type 2 gave rise to many competitors, although none would quite gain the same reputation or following. The T2 gained a lot of its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s, and became known as the "Hippie Van".Production eventually moved to Brazil and after many years ceased in December of 2013, due to the introduction of stricter safety regulations.

In 1967 we saw the second generation of the T2 introduced, being a 1974 model it was often called the “Late bay”. The van had lost its distinctive split front windshield and was considerably heavier than its predecessor.
