VW Camper and Microbus, Paperback

VW Camper and Microbus Paperback

Part of the Shire Library series


The Volkswagen Transporter is one of the best-loved and most recognisable motor vehicles of all time.

The preferred transport for surfers and hippies everywhere, the Volkswagen Type 2 'bus' was born in 1950, the first of a new breed of vehicle, the ancestor of today's people carrier.

Available in various versions, including panel van, pick up and minibus, the Transporter was often converted into campervans for a newly motorised class of holidaymaker.

This book looks at the development, production and use of the class first, and second, generation Transporter.

With archive illustrations including many colour photographs from old brochures this book is also a great evocation of the 1950s and 60s.
