|Estimate||£12,000 - £15,000|
|Result||Sold - £10,920|
The Volkswagen Type 2 was the third generation of the Volkswagen Transporter and was marketed under various nameplates worldwide. Larger and heavier than its predecessor, the T2, with a more squared and less rounded styling, was manufactured in Germany from 1979 until 1990. Examples built between 1979 and 1985 featured round headlights and chrome-plated steel bumpers with plastic end-caps. Air-cooled models (1979 to mid-1983) lack the lower grill above the radiator of the water-cooled models, except on models with factory air conditioning. 1986 model year vehicles received revisions including a tachometer, more fabric choices, redesigned air conditioner, larger water-cooled engine with a more advanced engine management system and redesigned transmissions including an optional Syncro four-wheel drive. Exterior changes include rectangular headlights (on selected models) and a variety of paint options.
This righthand drive camper is fitted with a 2100cc fuel injected engine and, as such, is a delight to drive, a new engine was fitted some 40,000 miles ago. The vendor is suffering from poor health and has not used her much of late although he has always kept her maintained and in good order. The front seats are from a Saab, trimmed in leather and are very comfortable; the passenger one swivels 'captain style'. The pop-up roof has metal sides making it more durable than the more common canvass roof. A reversing camera is fitted; a three-way fridge and both batteries have been replaced recently. Porsche Fuchs alloy wheels compliment the aesthetic look of this Volkswagen and make it an enjoyable vehicle to drive. This T25 camper is supplied with a brand new Avtex TV, an awning and a bike rack, together with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate and a history folder. These Volkswagen campers are always in high demand, particularly at the start of the summer, this example appears to be very realistically estimated given the condition and level of equipment.
