Volkswagen (T2) Bus (1970)
Debut Series Outdoor Adventure
Produced 2008-Present
Number MB734
Scale 1:59
Volkswagen T2 Buses - 1289ff

The Volkswagen T2 Bus is based on the 1970 production model of the same name. It was a veritable home on wheels and many free spirits in the 1960's and 1970's drove them and used them as a way of life. A similar model was used in the episode of Futurama entitled "Bendin' In The Wind," to great effect, as the main characters follow a band around and live in the Volkswagen Bus. Think Deadheads.

This vehicle is almost always released with a White plastic base and a White interior, except the Lesney Edition vehicle with a metal base, the 2009 Mail-in Superfast with a black base and interior, and the 2013 60th Anniversary Edition with a gold base and interior.


When the Pacific sun sinks into the sea, it's time for a bonfire and some barbeque action! And when the night stars come out, your Volkswagen T2 Bus doubles as an incredible camper van. Transform your Volkswagen into a cozy sleeper on wheels.
