A bit of history:
In the spring of 1947 Ben Pon, the Dutch importer of Volkswagen, visiting the Wolfsburg plants, saw a curious cart set up on the basis of the Beetle to transport heavy materials from a factory department.
This vision gave him the idea of bringing home the production of a commercial vehicle, shortly after he sketched a sketch from another Nordhoff (the then number 1 of Volkswagen) on a notepad.
From that sketch, on the basis of the Beetle (the only mechanic produced by the House at the time), the Typ 2 project was born, which resulted, on 12 November 1949, in the Transporter Typ2, but due to some design problems (it was necessary to reinforce the platform frame for transportation is a transport capacity and satisfactory torsional rigidity) Transporter deliveries began only in March 1950.
Originally equipped with the same 4 cylinder air-cooled 1131 cm³ 25 hp boxer, followed all the technical developments of the Beetle (including variations in displacement to 1192, 1285 and 1493 cm³), the success is immediately enormous, thanks to the skills of robustness, simplicity and versatility of the Transporter T1 (which German-speaking users began to affectionately call “bullies”).
The vehicle became a generational myth when the Samba (doorbell) versions, launched in the early sixties, the journey of the decade the ideal means of transport of Hippie and children of flowers, both in Europe and in the Californian West Coast.
The T1 was produced until 1967 in almost 1,800,000 specimens.
