This 1995 Volkswagen Type 2 13-Window Camper has a long name because it needs to convey all of the different features it has
This is a younger Brazilian import that has the iconic look with all that glass to let in plenty of sunshine. And you can decide where you want to see the sunrise because this is outfitted to be your home away from home.
South America kept many VW traditions alive longer than even Germany did. This is the kind of vehicle that gets to blend some of your favorite elements of the Type 2 Bus. The flat front end is the later Breadvan look, and the great body lines and smooth paint keep the crisp and clean look going from every angle. Of course, the full window treatment, including the wraparound rear ones, has the look of those first-gen surf wagons. And this even has a step ladder and wood roof rack so you can have an epic road trip to the beach. The two-tone green and white is a later respray so it not only has a nostalgic look, but also it shines just as bright as your memories. It’s never too fancy for a road trip, but even the little things like the shine of the side trim and VW hubcap are there to make sure you get extra attention everywhere you arrive.
Inside, the setup in the front is clean and comfy. You have vintage-cool pieces like the VDO gauges, dual-spoke steering wheel, and a split bench that gives the driver bucket-like individuality. It looks particularly nice because the essentials (upholstery, carpeting, door panels, dash pad, etc.) have a fresh feeling, and they all coordinate with a two-tone tan style. The thoughtfulness continues in the rear where it also adds function. You have full curtains that coordinate with the color theme. The facing rear seats can all convent around the table. The rear bench also folds together with the padded rear shelf for a nice flat bed. And there’s even an added sink with a water filtration system (it currently needs an outside source for the water.)
In the rear is the familiar VW flat-four motor. It’s a dual-carb 1600cc air-cooled powerhouse that retains the hardy reputation that makes these VWs so desirable. So it fires up with that same robust hum you have known for decades. These Buses are always associated with the open road, and so it’s nice to take full control of the motor with the four-speed manual transmission. And this one was made to be an easy cruiser. That’s why you have upgrades like power brakes, front discs, and modern tires disguised as classic whitewalls.
