VW Type 25 Gearbox Codes
The Type 25 featured either 4 speed or 5 speed manual gearboxes, or a 3 speed automatic gearbox.
The 4 speed gearbox was very similar to that of the Baywindow bus with reverse being in the down towards the left and then a traditional 4 speed gearshift gate.
The 5 speed gearbox featured a dogleg first gear which meant 1st gear was accessed by pushing the gearstick down towards the left (where reverse gear is in the 4 speed model). 2nd gear was then where 1st would normally be, 3rd where 2nd would normally be and 4th where 3rd would normally be. Reverse was located above 1st gear.
