Volkswagen Transporter for Sale
The iconic Volkswagen Transporter is iconic for a reason. Dating back to as far as 1947, the VW Transporter has a huge history, and it wasn’t always referred to as ‘the hippie van’! Back in 1974, the model was known as the VW Type II, inspired by sketches drawn by Dutch importer, Ben Pon. Ben had been inspired by the way Volkswagen transported parts around the factory in motorised trolleys, made from stripped down Beetle chassis.
