I really like Type 2s. A common daydream for me involves the barn-find of an original 21 or 23-window or truck. I can't explain in words my desire for a first generation Type 2 double-cab truck. If I had the money, I'd have a fleet of them.
Then there's this thing.
First generation VW Bus/Van/Type 2 values have been stratospheric for a while now, so it's no surprise to see nice examples pulling high asking prices. With the exception of a few outliers, a non-camper 21-window Type 2 can easily fall within the $30K-50K range. Lately, they've been climbing in to the near $100K territory, which seems beyond comprehension. The Buy it now price on this VW van is $220,000. You read that right.
While I'm sure that a lot of work went into it, and yes, it does tickle my fancy, I can't imagine paying that much, even if I were ridiculously wealthy.
Anyway, let's forget about the astronomical price and gaze lustfully at it.
I have to admit that the color combination looks great to me. The medium-range wood and tobacco interior looks fantastic.
Somehow, I suppose the little dual-port is going to push this thing. I imagine a fully-laden 0-60 E.T. would be measured in hours.
ETA: As user Hobroken points out, the $220K Buy It now price tag is for the bus AND the limousine business that owns it. I'm not sure what the value of a limousine license in Maui is, but it's a good catch.
