VOLKSWAGEN T2 BAY - "SURFER PICK-UP"
Happy to present the iconic VW T2 BAY WINDOW. NOW ON LEGO IDEAS!
About this creation


Few weeks ago I presented my custom version of LEGO set 10220 (VW T1 camper van), the “canvas pick-up” for road service. After having built it 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.



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.



VOLKSWAGEN T2 BAY - "SURFER PICK-UP" on LEGO IDEAS

If you like my "surfer pick-up" vote it on LEGO IDEAS.
It will be perfect on the shelf next to your VW T1 Camper Van and your Mini Cooper!
With your support the T2 “surfer pick-up” can be made into an official set.
You can make it happen, VOTE NOW!
Thank you for your support!





Above: my T2 is coming in my garage for a check. Don't worry, the guys know where put their hands...
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.





In a little toy store I found for a few Euros a tin model of VW T2 (I love old toys and tin cars/trucks); it’s identical to the one I built in LEGO and so I bought it right away and I took pictures of the two pick-up side by side.

Don't forget to vote the T2 "surfer pick-up" on LEGO IDEAS.
VOTE NOW!
Thank you for your support!

Quoting Sam the first Hi there" Thank you for joining Speedy September! Sadly, in order to keep the creations fresh and September-y, I can only allow one old creation. So I was just letting you know, so you can decide which of the two you would prefer to enter. Hope you understand! Yours - Sam.
Hi Sam, sorry for my mistake; no problem I remove one of my VWs.
