The Volkswagen Type 2 is Volkswagen’s workhorse in the form of a highly functional bus that is still omnipresent on the roads and adored by a very eclectic audience. Since 1950, it has been produced in six successive series, each bringing some modernization. In addition to its functionality, its design is pragmatic and contemporary, while older models evoke a nostalgic feeling.

For a long period’s time, the Volkswagen range only had only had one model since its establishment: the Type 1 ‘Beetle’. In 1947, Dutch VW importer Ben Pon felt that the range should be expanded with a delivery van, he drew a sketch that was used three years later in the design of the Type 2, that was launched in 1950. It is a delivery van with the engine and design based on the Beetle. The engine is placed in the back, the round shapes are retained making its design look friendly.

The Type 2 quickly developed its iconic status and beloved by everyone. The hippies were so enamoured that they went to live in the bus as if it were their home. They painted their campers as a protest against global famine, poverty, and war. The buses painted by hippies have become, along with the peace sign, the symbol of the hippie subculture and carefree 1960s.

Over the years, many variants were sold. Initially, it was intended as a delivery van, but camping was soon made possible, and, in the US, people were particularly fond of the pickup variant.

Volkswagen T2

The Volkswagen made its debut in 1967 being the second generation of the Volkswagen Type 2, commonly known as the Volkswagen 'Transporter'. Visual differences, compared to the T1, included the disappearance of the center bar in the windshield, a T2 was about a foot longer than its predecessor, it had a slightly rounder shape overall, and it weighed about four hundred kilograms more than the T1.

The T2 was produced in different continents around the world. It was replaced in Europe in 1979, but reportedly, production continued in Brazil until 2013. During those years, the T2 underwent some updates. In 1972, a second edition was introduced and brought aesthetic changes and a wider range of engines. In 1990, the T2, exclusively produced in South America by then, was reworked for the second time, primarily modernizing its engine. From then on, the T2 was equipped with a water-cooled engine.

Nearly everyone is familiar with a T2, making it highly coveted by many people. Also, T2 is not just a great investment, it can be driven daily as it is reliable like nothing else.
