DESCRIPTION

The Volkswagen Type 2 (T3) also known as the T25 or 'Vanagon' was the 3rd generation of the Volkswagen Transporter and was marketed under various nameplates worldwide - including as the Transporter or Caravelle in Europe.

It was a huge success and a radical jump forward in the evolution from Splitscreen and Bay Window Campers. It was also the last rear-engined classic VW and bridges the gap between classic air-cooled and rear-engined vehicles and modern water-cooled, front-engined cars and vans for VW.

This makes the T25 particularly interesting and marked the end of the classic era for VW.

This particular van is quite an unique example in many ways. A 1986 LHD model, it has spent all its life inside a rural Fire Station in Northern Germany, being more polished than driven and it remains in 'time-warp' condition. While other vans of this vintage will usually have rusted quite badly, this one is very solid and rust-free, having been kept in a heated fire service garage. It is still equipped with all the gear a fire van needs including rooftop indicators, sirens, tannoy, megaphone and blue lights, fold-down table at the rear, Westfalia towbar, rear blower heater etc.

It is fitted with a very frugal yet powerful 1.6 turbo diesel engine and is a full 9-seater so would be great for even the largest of families.

The current owner bought the van directly from the fire brigade, who were the only previous owners.

The van has only done approximately 79000km and has been very well maintained. As it was in active service until 2012, it always had to be ready for any emergency and, as you would expect from a fire van, it has been regularly serviced regardless of cost and has got lots of new parts fitted.

In totally original and rust-free condition, it is said to be fun to drive and a real eye-catcher whilst being very spacious and practical. MOT'd until November 2015 and taxed until this October, it is ready to drive away, although the emergency lights (which are easily removed and are shown here for photographic purposes only), will have to be taken off again first.

It offers great potential for customising into a camper van or just keeping as is to potentially show on the thriving VW show circuit.
