1974 Volkswagen Type 2
A turn-key classic camper with all the best features, and it's all offered at an affordable price. So this 1970 Volkswagen Type 2 Camper is that perfect vehicle for those who crave adventure to go with their classic car ownership.
The Type 2 (the original Beetle was the Type 1) used to be a symbol of the counter culture, and it only gets better when you can get away from society and camp out under the stars. The orange is a slightly bolder respray of the original color, so you get a period-correct feeling, but with a better shine for those times when you're showing off. It goes great with the white trim on the bumpers, wheels, and cover over the full-size front spare tire.
And nothing says the 1970s better than this orange plaid pattern used for the interior. It's a great uniform presentation that you see throughout the van. And with the peace-style curtains and plush carpeting, this truly feels like your retro home away from home. The driver gets all the right comforts with a bucket seat that has a commanding view of the road. Plus, there's a large steering wheel, a gearshift within easy reach, and a nice upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo for entertainment. The rear portion has been fitted with all the right camping comforts such as a dual burner stove, mini fridge, collapsible table, and sink. When it comes time for sleeping, not only do you have a sofa bed in the cabin, but also the iconic pop-up roof for comfortable camping. It's an amazing setup that we know has you thinking about how to use it for everything from campgrounds to the next car show.
This second-generation Bus comes with plenty of engineering improvements. First of all, the 1700cc motor is more powerful than anything available in the first generation. Plus, VW flat four motor is one of the most economical and robust powerplants to maintain and improve. That's why this well-kept example fires up nicely and runs strong. Plus, those who enjoy a fun weekend project, there are a lot of companies devoted to offering inexpensive upgrades that can quickly be installed without needing a huge toolbox. In fact, getting the most power from this motor is part of Bus ownership culture. Of course, one of the easiest ways to get the best engine performance in these vans is to master the power band of the four-speed manual transmission. Another reason why the second-generation Type 2s are desirable is because the suspension was also greatly improved. The original vans utilized a modified Beetle setup, but a second-generation Bus was built to better handle the unique weight and height of the vans. Add in front disc brakes and Toyo tires, and you'll happily cruise this classic camping machine.
This is the classic that can do it all get you there, give you something to show off, and then give you home-like comfort in the evenings. It's amazing you can get this total package for such an affordable price. Don't miss this deal, call today!
