T25 Cables, Shifter Mechanisms & Pedals

A Short History Of The VW Type 25 (cont.)

The T25 was available in a variety of camper conversions including; Westfalia, Holdsworth, Danbury, Devon and Reimo.

Amongst others, one of the more distinctive conversions was that by Karmann, called the Gipsy, which was a complete coachbuilt conversion on a pick-up style chassis. Not the most attractive conversion, it appeared almost as though someone had taken a caravan and rather unceremoniously dropped it onto the back of a pick-up, though it offered considerably more living space than the traditional van based conversions.

Whilst the T25s don't necessarily have the cult status that the earlier two generations of Transporter, a late Syncro Westfalia can easily command a five figure price tag these days.
