Model information

Bay Window Minibus and Type 2 Bay Window


1974 VW Minibus T2 Bay. Previously owned by John and Frances Hoare, Moorpark Garage, Birr, Co Offaly. Do you recognise it? This minibus had many uses: for weddings, school runs, trips to matches or to hospital and also delivered gas to the whole town!! Was in a shed for over 25 years and started with a new battery. Great heart.

Beetle.ie: Thanks to Yvonne for sharing her Bay Window Minibus with us. We love it and love the long family connection with the Bus. This Bus was originally sold from VW Motors in Harold’s Cross, Dublin  in September 1973 to the Redemptorists priests in Rathgar, Dublin 6. It was, and still is, Brilliant Orange (L20B) under Polar White (L90A). We’ve seen this Bus in person and it’s fantastic with the patina but we know it will look amazing when it receives its full restoration.
