Volkswagen T2 classic car
The 2nd generation Volkswagen Type-2 (better known as T2) was introduced in 1967 and built in Germany until 1979. Models before 1971 are often referred to as the T2a (early bay), while the models after 1972 are referred to as the T2b (late bay). . This 2nd generation Type-2 lost its characteristic windscreen, was slightly larger and considerably heavier than its predecessor.
The first T2b models had rounded bumpers with a step, front doors that open to 90° and half-moon air intakes in the D-pillars. They also had unique engine hatches and until 1971 front indicators low on the nose rather than high on either side of the grille. The 1971 Type-2 got a new 1.6L engine with a DIN power of 37kW. An important change came with the introduction of front brake discs and new road wheels with brake vents and flatter wheel covers. The most prominent change in 1972 was an enlarged engine compartment (for the 1.7 to 2.0 liter engines of the Volkswagen Type-4) and a redesigned rear end. Safety improved by a compressible structure behind the front bumper, meaning the T2b met US safety standards. The Volkswagen emblem on the front became slightly smaller.
Subsequent model changes were mainly mechanical. In 1974 the T2 got its final shape. During the late 1970s, the first prototypes of Type-2 4-wheel drive vans were built and tested.

Maintenance on a classic car
Of course every car needs maintenance, and it can sometimes happen that something needs to be repaired. It is no different for a classic car. Because you like to keep your classic car in top condition, a good garage is important. Any garage can provide you with maintenance, but sometimes you just need that extra bit of specialism, then you can choose to take your classic car to a classic car workshop where they focus on 1 brand or type of classic car.
