From working vehicle to stunning head-turner, if this T2 double cab could talk its stories would probably be highly entertaining. With good reason, because today it retains all the charm and personality of when it was a new, modified to reflect the changing tastes of the air-cooled Volkswagen scene. The restoration costs came to £120,000, that sum reflected in the detailing not only to the bodywork and interior but to the underside as well. There is no escaping the panel work presentation, the sides being production line-straight while the shut lines are flush. Brightwork is exemplary, as is the glass. Inside it's a far cry from when it was a working vehicle, with the seats and door cards re-trimmed in a 'waffle' style – the same material also lines the sides of the pick-up bed. . Dashboard and custom steering wheel successfully mix stock and aftermarket while the overhead console houses a trio of extra instruments. Any look at this T2 requires a session on hands and knees to fully appreciate the work that has gone into the out-of-sight areas and it does not disappoint, wherever one looks. A stunning T2 ready for show visits or the local cruise.
