Prices for Volkswagen type 2 (Bus, Vanagon, Van, Kombi, whatever you call it)
have seen a particularly rapid price increase in recent years. What was once the
cheap refuge for barefoot hippies is now an appreciating asset that can
be traded for significant Woodstock memorabilia, college
tuition or North Shore vacation, but today’s feature isn’t as
high as the typical overpriced Type 2 garage queen. Find this 1972 Volkswagen Type 2 Kombi Van offered for $5400 in Palm Beach, FL via craigslist. Tip from Fueltruck.
The Type 2 ranks just below an airport shuttle in terms of being fun to
drive, but is somehow cool. It is sort of like the old recliner that is
uncomfortable and covered in dog hair, but your grandpa will never sell it. Honestly I’m not that familiar with the Kombi because my thoughts drift to assisted suicide whenever I think about driving one of them on a regular basis, but perhaps some reader can enlighten us as to why this one has sleepy eyes and louvered windows in the side.
