The second generation Type 2, also known as the Bay-Window was manufactured from 1967 through 1979: model years 1968 through 1980. One of the largest changes was the loss of the distinctive front windshield. It was also a little larger and heavier than the first generation of buses.

As the years went on, there were subtle changes and facelifts, however the overall design stayed the same. There were also many engine changes through the years and as some die-hard Bus people will point out is that even though the power increased as the years went on, so did some of the problems. The earlier engines were easier to work on.

These iconic buses have had a multitude of uses spanning the globe, from Fire trucks to ambulances and utility use. They are also becoming extremely valuable as everyone wants to get their hands on one.

This particular model is a tin-top camper that has been partially restored. It has also had significant mechanical performed starting in 2012 and over the course of four years has had over $6,000.00 in work performed making this one of the quietest and smooth running VW's I have personally had the pleasure of driving. It also has a updated stereo for cruising enjoyment. The body and paint are not perfect, however this is not a typical mid-west rust-bucket. We would not hesitate to drive this across country as it sits. All recent receipts are available with extra keys.
