This is a 1974 Volkswagen T2 Baywindow, lovingly named “Jasper”. Jasper, despite appearances, is a late bay that’s had its front indicators lowered to match those of an early/crossover bay.


A lot of the work done to Jasper (the low indicators, the paintwork, and new engine) was completed by the previous owner, and most of it was done himself. As a result, there isn’t a wealth of receipts and history for the work completed. However, there is a comprehensive list of work completed by the current owner below.

The bus is currently kitted out as a day bus, meaning there is no rock and roll bed. The fridge is still in position and connected, and I still have the sink/hob unit which will be included in the sale.

The engine has been replaced with a reconditioned aircooled 1600cc which has covered roughly 4500 miles. It does require a new carb as the choke is worn. If a full price offer is made this will be fixed as part of the deal.
