The Appeal

The VW T2 Split Screen LHD is a classic van that embodies the spirit of the 60s. Possibly one of the most iconic vehicles in the world, there aren't many vans with such an impressive impact on pop culture. And who could blame the public for fawning after them? They're cute, compact, simple and absolutely perfect for a trip on the open road.

This particular example has been restored, with comprehensive bodywork and mechanical works carried out in 2014. The reconditioned engine, installed in 2015, ensures a reliable ride, while the interior has been given a full makeover by Type 2 Detectives, featuring new cream and grey vinyl upholstery and a full-width Rock & Roll bed. This van is perfect for family trips and adventures throughout the UK and Europe.
