You’ll no doubt be familiar with the phrase ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ Volkswagen do Brasil were so confident in the Aircooled Kombi that they built it right up until 2006. The reason being it was dependable, tried and tested, and straightforward to maintain. It was only new legislation in the Brazilian home market that necessitated the switch to a water-cooled power plant from 2006.
Here’s a perfect example of an Aircooled Kombi that has proven its worth to date. With 75,000 miles under its fan belt, it’s been on some adventures, but the combination of that classic engine and modern electronics means it’s good for many more miles or smiles as we say!!
In glossy black under white paintwork, this camper stays cool with 2/3rds tinted glass, a wooden cab roof rack, contrasting 7 seat cloth interior (extra seats not photographed,) lowered suspension with Porsche Fuchs style alloys and the spacious Diamond interior conversion.
This Kombi carries 5 comfortably with 3 point seatbelts up front and 3 lap belts to the rear. Raising the pop-top and adding bed boards with mattress, turns it into a 4 berth camper – 2 up, 2 down.
We can fit 3 point seat belts to the rear if required.
The camper has storage available within the kitchen unit and under the folding full-width bed. The spare wheel is carried on the front of the camper, with VW logo printed vinyl cover.
It’s a classic Aircooled engine with modern electronics and wiring ensures reliability and improved running costs compared to a Classic from the 1970s. The 48bhp 1.6 motor can return upwards of 25mpg.
