Our car:

The 1968 Volkswagen T2 Bus Window, which was born and has always lived in Italy, is the typical hippie van that is often associated with the 1970s and the events of the time.  It still carries original registration plates and documents for the transport of goods and people. It has transported many mountain enthusiasts for many years, having first belonged to the historic Veronesi ski club. Unfortunately, we are not in possession of any photographic material; it would be interesting to see its mutations and modifications over the decades.

Certainly, from the precise documentation provided to us by Volkswagen, its first colour was mono-colour code L282 Lotus White. During the restoration phase, we dug into its worn and rust-ridden bodywork and realised that it had undergone some transformations, finding traces of red and dark blue. Now restored to its original Lotus White and green colour, always respecting the colour codes and combinations of the time.

It still retains its original engine with its original type 1 (Bo) code, 1584cc displacement, 37 kw, clearly totally regenerated to make it daily usable and reliable.
1968 for the Bus windows marked the real transition from the T1 model to the T2 model with a panoramic windscreen and no longer with two flat windows cut in the middle.
Subsequently there were many aesthetic and technical variations, mainly in the braking system from a four-drum system to a much more effective mixed front disc and rear drum system. The engines also became more powerful, always with the classic air-cooled 4-cylinder boxer engine, reaching outputs of 69 hp. Given the great success of the very functional vehicle as a passenger transport and commercial vehicle, production continued for several years not only in Germany but also in Brazil.
At full load with 9 people it brilliantly copes with inclines and curves even on mountainous routes. Our car is recognised and entered in the Asi historic register as a vehicle of historical interest.
 

History:

Even the name "T2" ( Type 2) shows that in Volkswagen they didn't waste time romanticising by giving the cars attractive names as is common now, but with the simple use of an acronym.

The car originates from an external idea, and not from the usual design center in Wolfsburg. It is said that a Volkswagen importer in the Netherlands during a visit to the assembly lines of the Beetle in Germany noticed a cart built by the workers using the elements at their disposal to more easily move the heavier parts inside factories, it was a flat bed very extended that rested on a frame of an elongated beetle with engine and front end of a Type 1. He subsequently showed some drafts to the Volkswagen executives who received the project with interest and after just one year the first prototypes came to life and on 12 November 1949 the Volkswagen Type 1 went into production. All the updates of the Beetle's engines followed, starting with a displacement of 1200cc to reach in the last editions 1795 cc with a considerable 68 hp.
Stylistically, it passed from the front glass in 2 sections to a large single windscreen, becoming the T2 bay model , in 1969 the lights and bumpers were enlarged to meet the strict safety regulations of the American market.
Many were the construction variants over the years: from the most renowned and coveted by the purists Volkswagen T1 24 windows; to the panel van that was born as a work platform with an open floor, ideal for loading goods; T2 Bay transporter for goods, and T2 Bay Window for the transport of 8-9 people.
In 1979, It gave way to the new T25 best known in Italy as T3, but its production was moved to South America (Mexico and Brazil) where it continued until 2002 in Mexico and in 2013 in Argentina due to the restrictions of the transport ministry. Still used today in Bolivia, they run on ethanol that is easier to find and much cheaper than modern fuels.
It is difficult to quantify the precise number of specimens produced in the various series.
