The brick. An often overlooked commercial vehicle that is becoming more and more of a gem in the VW range. We’ve seen too many classic split screen revivals, too many rat-look bays, too many pointy noised T4’s, and too many hot rodded T5’s, but the LT – and particularly the LT Mk 1 – was a square box onto which very few professional converters fitted their wares, leaving instead a world full of self-builds, and in tow a world full of stories to tell.
This site tells a few of those stories and hopes to serve as a memory of these fantastic vehicles (the Mk 1’s have now not been in production for 20 years). There’s some blurb on the van’s themselves (some nicked from Wikipedia, some nicked from Brick Yard), a brief history and summary of the main conversions – the Sven Hedin and Westfalia Florida, some stuff on the mighty 4 x 4 LT, a blog, event details and more.
Please feel free to contribute. Drop me a line if you’ve written something that you’d like published. Maybe you’ll be inspired by some of my build stories or journal entries and write your own. I’m always up for posting more LT photos, and you can sign up to follow me on Pinterest top right.
This website is brought to you in conjunction with VOLT the VW LT Owners Facebook group.
