Smile What kind of volkswagen is this?

Can anyone give me some more information on what type/year etc. on this type of VW camper?



Is there something on that one that isnt original?

Well, its a split-window bus which means its 1967 or older.

Things that i notice are not original: (i may be wrong on a few)

The 5-lug and Fuchs are not original.
Obviously lowered
The headlights/surrounds look aftermarket
I dont think that is a factory antenna location
And theres a buch of other stuff that may have been a dealer option or something like the foglights, roof racks, and mirrors.

That's a pretty accurate description; Type-2, or Kombie

I had a 21 window version of this. Got lots of attention.
