Overview

The Volkswagen Transporter is one of the best loved and most recognisable motor vehicles of all time. The favourite transport of surfers everywhere, and the shape that can be found on a thousand greetings cards, album covers and keyrings, the Volkswagen Type 2 'bus' was launched to the world's media in 1949 and became the first of a new breed - the ancestor of today's people carrier. Available in various versions, including the Delivery Van, Pick-up and, of course, minibus, the Transporter also became popular with convertors who made them into camper vans for a newly motorised class of holidaymaker. Richard A. Copping describes the development, production and use of the classic first- and second-generation Transporter, which he complements with rare and colourful illustrations from archive brochures: a great evocation of the 1950s and '60s.

Marque expert and lifelong Volkswagen enthusiast Richard A. Copping has written over a dozen books covering a variety of models, and regularly contributes articles to a number of magazines.
