VOLKSWAGEN T2 BAY - "SURFER PICK-UP"
I've always loved the VW Transporter series, it isn’t just a van or pick-up but it’s a way of life. So after having built a custom T1 based on LEGO® set 10220, I decided to design and create the model that replaced it, the iconic VW T2, introduced in late 1967 and built in Germany until 1979.
The T2 is also called Bay or Bay Window. Here is it!
I personally prefer the T2 than the T1, in my opinion the front is more appealing. My T2 is a classic “2 seat” pick-up in blue. The pick-up configuration was very widespread in the seventies, both in Europe and in the USA.
The T2 has surely been the most loved van/pick-up by the surfers of all the world. So I placed two surfboards on the load compartment and I put close to it a classic LEGO palm tree from pirates series. My T2 has two side doors below the load compartment, that is made of wood. Two S.E.V. MARCHAL supplemental lights are fitted on the front bumper. These were very common in the seventies. The rear hood can be opened and you can see the classic air-cooled boxer engine. In the pictures you can see the T2 in plain sight and also into my VW Oldtimer Garage that isn't included into my LEGO IDEAS project.

Imagine the T2 alongside the VW T1 camper van and the Mini Cooper on the shelf of your room or in a display case, wonderful, isn’t it?
Let the “MODEL TEAM” family gets larger!
With your support the T2 “surfer pick-up” can be made into an official set.
