More About this Item


Description

This “Bulli” with model year 1974 was first registered in Italy on the 3rd October 1973. After faithfully serving years as a simple transport vehicle for a hotel in the Toscana, the car was finally restored a number of years ago. In 2019 the VW was bought by the vendor in Barolo followed by an importation into Switzerland. To obtain a Swiss registration, the car was mechanically overhauled and, among other things, received a new carburettor and a complete brake overhaul. In 2020 the T2 was converted into a camper and besides a new interior had a solar panel installed on its roof. From then on, the car was used for excursions to the most idyllic places Switzerland has to offer. The reliable “baby-bus” is in very good condition and will certainly provide many years of faithful service on short and long journeys to its new owner. The last MOT was successfully completed in August 2020.
Deutsch: Dieser „Bulli“ Modelljahr 1974 wurde am 3. Oktober 1973 erstmals in Italien zugelassen. Nach Jahren der Arbeit als Transportfahrzeug eines Hotels in der Toskana, wurde der VW vor einigen Jahren restauriert. 2019 wurde der VW vom Einlieferer in Barolo gekauft und dann in die Schweiz importiert. Für die Schweizer Zulassung wurde der Wagen mechanisch überholt und erhielt unter anderem einen neuen Vergaser und eine Revision der Bremsanlage. 2020 wurde der T2 zum kleinen Camper ausgebaut und erhielt neben dem Innenausbau auch ein Solarpaneel auf das Dach. Fortan wurde der Wagen für Ausflüge an die schönen Plätze der Schweiz genutzt. Der zuverlässige VW Bus befindet sich in sehr gutem Zustand und wird einem neuen Besitzer gerne als Begleiter für kleinere und grössere Reisen zur Verfügung stehen. Die letzte MFK erfolgte im August 2020.

Dès lors, la voiture a été utilisée pour des excursions dans les endroits les plus idylliques que la Suisse a à offrir. Le bus VW fiable est en très bon état et fournira certainement de nombreuses années de service fidèle sur de courts et longs trajets à son nouveau propriétaire. La dernière expertise a été effectuée avec succès en août 2020.
