The second generation of the Volkswagen Kombi (T2) was introduced in 1967 without the popular split-window design of the previous model and was produced in West Germany until 1979.
Commonly known as the ‘Bread loaf’ and ‘Bay-window’, this VW Kombi was slightly larger and heavier than the T1, with an enlarged 1.6L 4-cylinder motor pushing out a minuscule 47 bhp. The battery and electrical system were upgraded to 12 volts, making it incompatible with electric accessories from the previous generation. The updated T2 eliminated both swing-axle rear suspension and transfer boxes previously used to raise ride height. Half-shaft axles were fitted instead.
The example we have on offer is finished in the classic colour combination of blue and white with a grey interior. It has 7676km indicated on the clock and still presents beautifully. The VW Kombi remains an icon for a spacious, comfortable family van and continues to increase in popularity as time goes on.
