This is one for the dedicated collector. A Volkswagen T1 with a verified mileage of only 13,551 km! This Volkswagen T1 was given the registration plate “SEL D 902” on the 11th January 1961 belonging to the Wiesau fire service, a small place in Northern Bavaria near the Czech border. When first supplied it came with a so-called "Fahrtennachweis und Begleitheft-Prüfbuch" or as we would say a logbook. The car remained in service until 2011, when it disappeared into a collection. During its 50 year service the logbook shows us the T1 joined many exercises and still only traveled 13,428 service kilometres. Most fire services a very well placed to provide correct vehicle maintenance. Looking at the number of oil changes entered in the VW T1’s logbook this fire department was no exception to the rule. Stating this vehicle is both visually and mechanically practically pristine may seem rather bold for a 60 year old car; looking at the photos it is none the less absolutely true.
The completely original bodywork has wonderfully straight and correctly aligned panelwork. There are some, really negligible, signs of use. Most of the paintwork is more or less original except for the lightly re-sprayed nose, done for cosmetic reasons. The interior trim is Spartan for todays standards but shines by its simplicity. It just goes to show that minimalist design withstand the ravages of time better than anything else, just magnificent! Mechanically this vehicle is perfectly sound. The 1.2 boxer engine delivers 34 Ps coupled to a manual 4-speed gearbox. The engine runs perfectly and the transmission feels as good as new. The Volkswagen T1 has not been in production for a long time. Where normal cars get lost in the mists of time, over the years Ben Pon’s brainchild, the T1, has become more and more loved by people. The formula of using Beetle technique in the guise of a bus was a stroke of genius. There is certainly nothing better for sale if you are looking for a brilliant, original, unrestored Volkswagen T1 with verified low mileage.
