Description

 

TRAVELLER JET: LUXURY VW TYPE 25
Traveller Jet, was a styling concept vehicle based on the humble VW Type 25.  Its origins date back to 1979, and would have featured VW’s 2.0-litre air-cooled engine, before the switch to the Wasserboxer unit that followed in 1982.

 

The luxury one-off was bristling with innovative features both inside and out, and effectively gave an insight into what was to come later on with the luxury Caravelle model that appeared three years later. 
With a TV aerial mounted above the cab and large rear roof mounted air-conditioning unit.

 

Set into the sliding side doors each side there’s wall to ceiling Perspex slats, presumably to add extra luminosity inside.  There looks to be a rounded Perspex covered aperture in the roof, too, again to improve interior lighting and make up for the loss of light from the futuristically louvered rear side windows.
