With a V5 First Registered date of 28th April and an ID Plate date of May 1971, originally from Italy, this is one of the very latest of the T2a Early Bay buses manufactured. It has all early features and no crossover parts.

Purchased in 2009 in Devon, the van had been driven to the UK on a tour of Europe and due to hard-times, the owner reluctantly had to sell.

The bus was in far from good condition, with lots of rusty panels, water leaks, a faded DIY paint job as well as a non-standard ‘Nissan’ interior and lots of personal alterations made over the years. However, it drove well on its original unmodified engine and rolling gear and was worth rescuing, so I bought it and registered in the UK.

Throughout 2010/2011 the van underwent a full refurb, thanks to Ron at Endangered Species and a whole host of other VW specialists and enthusiasts doing their bit. Where possible, original parts were retained and either NOS or repro parts used where required.
The list of works is extensive (over £18,000) and I have photos charting the process.

• Replacement panels where necessary
• Window and door seals

• Lambs wool insulation
• Upholstery and door cards

• Electric washer jets
• Curtains
• Clutch and accelerator cables
• Wheels
• White wall tyres
• Full undersealing
• Seat belts front and rear
• Exterior styling parts
• Exhaust

The van is now a beautiful example of an early bay in age-appropriate colours.

The interior is designed without cooking facilities to maximise day-use space and sleeping-space. Perfect for day trips, weekend camping or longer drives/tours.

After completion in late 2011 the van has been used for regular trips, and camps, but only ever in the summer, so has had no exposure to salt/grit on winter roads and has always been garaged when not in use.

Due to personal circumstances the van has been laid-up in storage for the last 2 years with battery maintenance, lubrication and regular starting. Having now been unpacked it continues to driver perfectly and after a full clean looks beautiful. A real head-turner and talking point wherever it goes.

Whilst sadly circumstances are now forcing the sales of my pride and joy, it’s the right time to let him go to his next home. A careful and respectful enthusiast can now enjoy many more years of VW fun and celebrate his 50th year on the road in 2021.
