The split window VW T1 panel bus, also known as the Volkswagen Type 2, is an iconic vehicle that holds a special place in automotive history. Manufactured by Volkswagen from 1950 to 1967, this classic panel bus has become a symbol of freedom, adventure, and the counterculture movement of the 1960s.

One of the defining features of the VW T1 panel bus is its unique split windshield, which gave it its nickname “split window.” This design feature was present in the early models, up until 1964 when it was replaced with a larger, single-piece windshield. The split window not only adds to the bus’s charm and vintage appeal but also provides a panoramic view of the road ahead, making it perfect for road trips and adventures.

The VW bus has a distinct boxy shape, characterized by its vertical front end and flat roofline. The interior of the VW bus is relatively simplistic, yet functional, giving you everything you need and nothing more. The charm of the bus comes when you set out for a drive with friends and family, leaving you to just enjoy the company and scenery around you.

The example on offer is finished in a stunning mint and white combination on the exterior with a white interior, making for a standout specification. The 1963 T1 bus has covered some 50234km indicated on the clock, however one can assume it has already clocked over at least once. This particular example is the German spec and has had a ground-up restoration with redone suspension and engine to keep it in good running condition. If you’re looking for something to enjoy for your next adventure, look no further than this beauty of a VW bus.
