VW Bus: History of a Passion

Author(s): Jorg Hajt

Reference

In November 1949,a new epoch of automotive history began with the presentation of the first small Transporter by Volkswagen. Like no other light utility vehicle before, the variety-rich space-saver from Wolfsburg influenced the development of a very new generation of universally usable minivans. Six decades after its introduction, the "Bulli," the nickname used by its legion of fans, has lost none of its fascination. Today, well-maintained examples of the T1 (1950-1967) and T2 (1967-1979) have become rare and particularly expensive collector's items. In this book, author Jrg Hajt portrays VW buses of all body types, lovingly restored and customized, and offers a comprehensive history of the brand. Nearly 200 archival and modern photos document the wide range of Transporters from the camper to emergency vehicles to a contractor's van and much more. Complete construction and technical details and important tips for buying a VW Transporter today round out this wonderful pictorial volume.
