Since the VW T1 Transporter was getting rather long in the tooth after 17 years in production, and increasing numbers of competitors were trying to secure a place in the lucrative small transporter market, in August 1967 Volkswagen introduced the second generation of the VW Transporter, the T2. Compared to its predecessor the T1, the T2 was a complete and consistent new development. With the newly developed 1.6 litre engine with a powerful 47 BHP, revised independent wheel suspension and a complicated semi-trailing arm double steering axle, the T2 had extraordinarily good handling, which was able to match the handling of contemporary cars without problems. With its „new face“ with a continuous windscreen, the Volkswagen T2 was able to seamlessly continue the VW Transporter success story that began in 1950. Schuco is going to produce a miniature model of this VW T2a camping bus to a scale of 1:87. Edition 1:87 models come with a metal body and chassis. As is expected of Schuco models, a number of key features have been reproduced exactly with the greatest attention to detail. These models are the perfect choice for model railways enthusiasts, diorama makers and die-hard model collectors.
