ABOUT VW T2 BUS

In late 1967, the second generation of the Volkswagen Type 2 (T2) was introduced. It was built in West Germany until 1979. In Mexico, the Volkswagen Kombi and Panel were produced from 1970 to 1994. Early models are often called the T2a (or "Early Bay"), models after 1971 are called the T2b (or "Late Bay") and models after 1991 are called the T2c.

This second-generation Type 2 lost its distinctive split front windshield, and was 22.5 cm (9 in) longer and considerably heavier than its predecessor. Its common nicknames are Breadloaf and Bay-window, or Loaf and Bay for short. At 1.6 L and 35 kW (48 PS; 47 bhp) DIN, the engine was also slightly larger. The battery and electrical system was upgraded to 12 volts, making it incompatible with electric accessories from the previous generation. The new model eliminated the swing axle rear suspension and transfer boxes previously used to raise ride height. Instead, half-shaft axles fitted with constant velocity joints raised ride height without the wild changes in camber of the Beetle-based swing axle suspension. The updated Bus transaxle is sought by off-road racers using air-cooled Volkswagen components.

The Volkswagen Transporter was also in use after the German Army was established in 1955. It was therefore a logical step for the German Army to also order the successor to the T1, the VW T2, from Volkswagen in greater quantities. The VW T2’s, many of which were delivered to the German Army, were used as personnel carriers, radio vehicles, ambulance vehicles and also as command vehicles, Many T2‘s were still in use until the end of the 1980’s, and were gradually replaced with the Volkswagen T3.
