There’s something special about the 1971 Volkswagen T2b, and it’s not the 1.6-liter engine with dual intake ports or the front disc brakes and flat hubcaps. Rather, it’s the symbolic quality of this artefactual vehicle. The minibus, as it’s sometimes called, belongs to another time. That’s why it’s so strange when this bus appears in the show, Lost, as a Van belonging to the Dharma Initiative. The audience, along with the characters, feels out-of-joint with time. The ‘71 Volkswagen bus is a vehicle to the past, both in Lost and in life.
With a 1/18 Artisan Collection Lost 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 (T2b) Dharma Van, made by Greenlight, you can enjoy the feeling of a time gone by while getting a closer look at the van that was driven by some of the most beloved characters on television.
