VW Bus, produced for more than half of a century in 4 continents, has become a true historical icon.

Just like many most iconic automobiles, VW Type 2 has a humble working class beginning – based on the practical Beetle (also known as Type 1), Type 2 was meant to help Post-WWII Germany recover as well as provide foreign businesses with a compact transport vehicle to transport goods or people around. Type 2’s creation is attributed to a Dutch Volkswagen importer, Ben Pon, who saw a niche for a small bus and pitched the idea to VW. Exporting VW Buses to US later earned Pon a huge fortune.
