This Porsche Tribute VW Type 2 Van Runs On A 204HP 911 SC Flat-Six Engine

In the early 1980s Porsche was in need of support vehicles that could generally keep pace with its Group B 959 racers at the infamous Dakar Rally, ultimately prompting the Stuttgart marque to build the B32 van — a VW Vanagon with up-specced suspension and braking components, Fuchs wheels, and a 231hp 3.2L flat-six plucked from the 911 Carrera.

With only 15 specimens having been produced (not including prototypes) from 1983 through 1985, B32 specimens are extremely rare — prompting one Porsche enthusiast to craft their own B32 tribute van. Starting with a 1982 Type 2 transport van, the rolling tribute has been gifted a 204hp air-cooled 3.0L flat-six out of a 911 Super Carrera mated to a Type 915/62 five-speed manual transmission — both of which were completely refreshed by Porsche specialist 911 Motorsport, who also overhauled the project’s chassis. Inside, the tribute sports the steering wheel, stick shift, and instrumentation setup from a 911, along with custom leather race seats with Schroth harnesses front and back. Riding on 16 ″ Fuchs wheels shod in Continental sport tires, this “sport van” also boasts Porsche discs and calipers, Bilstein suspension, auxiliary lighting, and a stainless steel SCART exhaust system. This custom flat-six-powered 1982 Volkswagen Type 2 Porsche B30 tribute van is currently for sale in Belgium through House of Cars with an asking price of approximately $103,000.

Purchase: $103,000
