Description[edit | edit source]

  • This vehicle is almost always released with a White plastic base and a White interior, except the Lesney Edition vehicle with a metal base, the 2009 Mail-in Superfast with a Black base and interior, and the 2013 60th Anniversary Edition with a Gold base and interior.
  • When the Pacific sun sinks into the sea, it's time for a bonfire and some barbeque action! And when the night stars come out, your Volkswagen T2 Bus doubles as an incredible camper van. Transform your Volkswagen into a cozy sleeper on wheels.
    —From the 2010 and 2011 Outdoor Sportsman cards
