Volkswagen Type 2 at Radnor Hunt

Everything was indeed accounted for on this immaculate Volkswagen Bus.

Anyone who grew up in the 1960s or 1970s knows what the VW MicroBus is.  It won’t win any drag races or autocross events, but its timeless styling and endlessly cool image have kept it relevant since its inception.  The Type 2 is considered by some to be one of the first mass-production minivans, predating the venerable Dodge Caravan and its family by over 2 decades.  This particular example was present at the 2011 Radnor Hunt Concours in eastern Pennsylvania, and stood out in the best of ways.  The blue Mark 1 21-window version was optioned to the roof and one of the best (if not THE best) example I’ve ever seen in my life.  More pictures after the jump.

It's rare to see one this good. I know this is the best I've seen up close.

Simple, clean interior, devoid of a lot of features but has everything one needs.
Air-cooled 4-cylinder engine. Not quick, not sophisticated, but very durable.
The original books and tool kit were even present. If that's not cool, I don't know what is.
