Berlin Splittie Campervan

15 07 2012

Saw this beauty two weeks ago on a lovely summer evening in Berlin-Friedenau. Interesting color scheme – the beige almost looks like the color of an ambulance. Based on the indicators and the back lid, it should be a T1c split-window, so made between 1964 and 1967. This one also comes with the classic Westfalia wooden roof rack from the same era. Beautiful bus!

Nice Split! Here in the US ’67 was the first year back-up (reverse) lights appeared over the tail lights. When did they show up in Europe?

I admittedly have never looked for them… Just flicked through three VW bus books but did not get any wiser. Just realized that most photos show the front of the bus and not the rear.
