1969 VW Bus: Who Needs 23 Windows?

Pink bus

A long-time Barn Finds reader Olaf E. found this interesting Transporter and sent it in, thanks Olaf! This is a Peruvian built 1969 VW T2 Window Bus and is listed here on eBay UK for £7,500.00 or best offer. This T2 is now parked at Lodge Road, Hollesley Woodbridge, Suffolk. It might not be a Samba, but it seems a lot more interesting in this configuration!1969 VW Type 2 Window Bus

It seems this bus was built as a fast food truck and still wears the previous owner’s signage. The bright pink paint and Di Boris Fast Food painted on the side would surely grab people attention! As the owner states, “it’s a blank canvas with many potential uses”. We have never seen a “blank canvas” that was this pink!

The front part of this bus, except the the passenger’s seat, was left alone. The owner says it is in pretty good shape overall, it starts and runs well, the gearbox is in working order. The brakes will need some attention, but that shouldn’t be much of an issue.

The inside is much closer to a blank canvas than the outside. We don’t know what the ceiling height is inside the food prep area and if you are much over 5′ it might be good to know. The new owner will have to outfit the inside to their needs.

The owner, from memory, doesn’t think there is much welding to do. He says the unit has an excellent main chassis, but again this is coming from the seller’s memory. The owner is going to have another look underneath and will clarify the condition.  The electrics are OK, the T2 needs a respray, and a set of tyres (tires). They thinks this Bus would look great selling latte’s out in the West End. It looks like you would get good cross ventilation in this and you can serve from both sides when the “rush” comes during intermission! So what would you do with this bus, other than show it off?

Motor-on the M1,

    The stupidest thing I have ever seen on 4 wheels.

    I’m an air-cooled VW guy and this thing would never darken my garage.

    Harsh comments from an audience that is usually fairly receptive.
    If I was involved in weekend vintage racing, say with an old Porsche, and had a wife and kids along, this could be redone as a tow vehicle and mobile living room.
    Just saying. . .

    Only if you put a Porche engine in it! As is this couldn’t tow your family, let alone a race car!
