The T2D Baja

The Type 2 Detectives approach is more than a restoration.

The T2D Bajas are produced in small numbers, each car
painstakingly restored with thousands of hours dedicated to each individual build.

The obsession and attention to detail is second to none with
a team that is dedicated to their craft.

Let your adventures begin...


Each T2D Baja is purpose built to order and includes the
following specification as standard:

•      High quality body and chassis restoration
•      Uprated Bilstein equipped suspension
•      Independent rear suspension with rebuilt gearbox and long travel CV joints
•      Bare metal repaint in a colour of your choice
•      Full retrim to your own specification
•      DAB sound system
•      1776cc air-cooled VW engine with Webber carburettor and off road exhaust
•      Off-road wheels
•      BF Goodridge all terrain tyres


Each Baja is stripped, the body and chassis are disassembled to rebuild/restore/replace each component.

The chassis goes through a multi-stage process, new panels (if required) are replaced ready for a comprehensive protection of hard wearing paint.

The body, is likewise stripped and any metal work replaced with fabricated panels before a comprehensive paint process is applied, working with you to create your very own unique Baja.

Engine, transmission and mechanical aspects are stripped and rebuilt (bespoke builds on request).

Brakes are fully overhauled/upgraded to your specification.

Suspension is overhauled/upgraded to your specification with Bilstein shock absorbers.

A new bespoke wiring loom is installed along with LED road lights and digital odometer.

All components are powder coated / cerakoted (according to required specification).

New fuel tank and bio fuel lines installed.

Interior specifications allow for a wide range of finishes from classic interiors to contemporary installations.

DAB/Apple car play/stereo options to your specification.

A Type 2 Detectives certificate of authenticity is issued with every build.
