Volkswagen Transporter – Haynes Great Cars series. A celebration of an automotive and cultural icon.
Instantly recognized across the world, Volkswagen’s Transporter proved a great success from the day of its launch to the world’s automotive press in November 1949. Its versatility as a workhorse, people carrier and (albeit unintentionally at first) as a camper, has guaranteed it a unique place in motoring history, while the desire to own one or more examples of varying ages has resulted in escalating values for surviving Transporters, and not just the earliest of models. Now the Transporter is the subject of this book and part of the Haynes Great Cars Series, where stunning studio photography combines with archive material and a narrative covering all the key elements in the history of this venerable box on wheels.
