The VW T1 Bus is probably one of the most iconic images of the 60’s. The cheeky design, the simple technology and its versatility were absolutely unique at the time. An interesting fact is that the first-generation of the Volkswagen Transporter was designed by the Dutch VW importer Ben Pon. Pon had received numerous market requests for a more practical VW Beetle version. Armed with a simple sketch he went to Wolfsburg and presented his proposal to the directors, the rest, as you know, is history. The T1 hit the markets as a proper Volkswagen: a lot of vehicle for your money. In 1964 our example was first registered in the Netherlands and uniquely has remain so ever since. The original registration papers are included. The T1 has been thoroughly overhauled and restored. The restoration works started in 2003 and seeing that the last owner put the registration in his name in 2006 indicates that it took over 3 years to complete the works. Now 14 years later it is clear that the restoration was carried out to a pleasing standard. The paintwork is still neat as is the interior trim, which exudes a divine amount of patina. As you might well expect, all instruments and switches are in good working order. Mechanically the T1 is in excellent condition. The 1.5 litre 4-cylinder boxer engine is the correct 1964 unit. Due to the excellent maintenance over the last 14 years it should come as no surprise that naturally the ride and gear change are very good. There are various invoices included in the documentation that confirm the notion that this motor has wanted for nothing. All in all this is a wonderful Volkswagen bus that is ready to undertake many more miles of classic, adventurous travel! Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!
