CHAMPAGNE EDITION DELUXE MICROBUS – this is called ‘the Silverfish model’

History

At the end of the production of the late bay window T2b bus in 1978, Volkswagen produced a special limited edition bus called “Lord of Hannover”. This was a commemorative model to celebrate the end of the Type 2 production and the last run from the Wolfsburg factory prior to modernisation of the plant in preparation for the start of the production of the Type 3 model. These were built as 7 seater microbuses and delivered to Berlin as public service vehicles. It features a very distinctive metallic silver paintwork and was one of only 600 Silberfische as the model was known in Germany to be built. Silberfisch has since been anglicised to Silverfish . Of the originals only a handful are known to survive and none in better condition than this one. The vehicle was sitting in a barn in Krakow Poland for 16 years until it was found in 2001 and imported to the UK.

Specification

The Silverfish has an upgraded 2.8 big bore engine with twin 40 carburettors replacing the factory 1.6 version. This provides ample power and speed for today’s roads. Chrome trim is visible throughout with chrome bumpers that will include a pair of ultra rare stainless steel overriders, it has a sliding steel sunroof that disappears into the roof. This bus looks like it has just come out of the showroom.
