Volkswagen Transporter – The Complete Story. By Laurence Meredith
It would be a mistake to think that only Volkswagen’s Beetle has captured the imagination of the motoring public. The Transporter — or VW Bus — was designed to incorporate many of the Beetle’s tried-and-true features in a capable and roomy commercial vehicle. What was a purely utilitarian transport in the 1950s and ’60s has become an icon of the ’90s, as owners rebuild tired Transporters for a new generation. Author Meredith charts the full history of the transporter from 1949 to the present.
