Aircooled Last Made?

Postby Sir Brixalot » 21 Sep 2019, 20:21

With Ulez getting ever closer, I'm looking at alternatives, newer van or bay or air-cooled. Just seen a 1984 Aircooled T25 on Ebay. Didn'tVW finish making them in 82?

I think it was 83. Maybe it was first registered in 84.

They were made up to Dec 82, So some would have been registered in 1983 and some camper conversion even in 84 if how long my one was registered after its build date.

Shows the stupidity of the system where I have to sell an LPG van but If I wanted I could run run a 40-year-old diesel instead
