Book Description

April 1997
When Dutchman Ben Pon saw motorized trollies built from Beetle chassis and running gear carrying components around Wolsburg in 1947, he sketched an outline for a simply constructed van. Although Pon's "box on wheels" concept was initially turned down by the British, who were then managing the factory, the idea was taken up by Heinz Nordhoff who took over as VW's chief executive in 1948. By November that year the first blueprints were available and just a year later the first VW transporter was unveiled. The concept of the transporter or "Bulli" as it was known in Germany, remain little changed throughout four decades of production, during which over five million examples were produced. This book tells the full story of the Transporter from the earliest "split-screen" types through the "bay window" models to the later generation vehicles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bay Window Devon Camper type 2 23 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on
My name is Yvon (18 years) from the Netherlands, and since I was 15 I dreamed of having a Volkswagen Bus. I think it'll be great to go on vacation with friens and drive for many hours. When you see a very happy girl, driving a car like that...then you's me. I hope i'll get a car like that.
Why do I like those cars? I set in the back of a bay window devon once, and it maked me feel like I was in 'the old times'. People smile at you, say that you have a nice car. And you don't see them much. Enough reasons? I think so. Bye to all you lucky people with a VW Bus!!!
