Popularity of classic Volkswagen vans on the up
It’s more than a hobby, and more than just a collectible item – the classic Volkswagen bus has become a phenomenon.
Not that long ago you get a good VW bus for very reasonable money, now however the prices are just rocketing up.
We’ve seen good examples sell for about $100,000 in Australia.
Now, this beautifully restored 1967 Volkswagen T1 is about to go to auction in the UK and is tipped to fetch about £90,000.
That’s more than $150,000 Australian dollars!
Going under the hammer at the Bonhams Collector’s Motor Car auction, the bus boasts a brand-new engine, extensive bodywork and paint restoration.
While on the inside there’s an Alpine surround sound system, DVD player, internet connection and plush new seating.
Nice bus, but would you pay $150,000 for it? Do you think it would be a good investment? Let us know your Volkswagen Combi stories in the comments section below.
