The Volkswagen Transporter is one of the most popular and most iconic vehicles of the German brand. Its production and commercialization has lasted for more than 60 years all over the world. The first three generations were known progressively with the name T1, T2 and T3; also known as Volkswagen Kombiwagen or simply Volkswagen Kombi. For the passenger versions of this vehicle, from the beginning it was called Volkswagen Transporter or Volkswagen Bus. There are versions Kombi, passenger vans and cargo, named in some markets Volkswagen Panel and Camper.

After the end of World War II, based on a Beetle, the construction of the first Volkswagen Transporter was planned. Initially with the name of Volkswagen Type 29, at the time of presenting the vehicle to the public acquired the definitive nomenclature of Volkswagen Type 2, since Volkswagen Sedan had the denomination Volkswagen Type 1. Its production began the March 8th of 1950. It was driven by a 25-hp, air-cooled, 4-cylinder boxer engine that was installed in the rear. It had a load capacity of 760 kg and could reach a top speed of 80 kph.

Soon they were found utilities of all type, like for example, vehicle for ambulance or firemen. A version of removable seats and 3 windows were introduced on both sides for a maximum of up to 8 seats. During the celebration of the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September 1951, Volkswagen introduced the Samba version, which was a luxury minibus from the Transporter line. It had space for 7 passengers, side windows, curved windows and canvas sliding roof.

The production in Germany of the Volkswagen T1 was completed in 1967 and until 1975 this model has continued to be produced at the Volkswagen plant in Brazil, which was renamed as T1.5.

In Garage 56 we started with the process of restoration of a Volkswagen Samba originally from Germany of 21 windows of the year 1961. When the restoration project is finished we will return to the roads one of the great icons of the Volkswagen brand and that has been becoming the symbol of an entire generation during the 60's. We estimate that the process of restoration of this vehicle can last up to 10 months.
