Revell 1/24 Volkswagen T1 Samba Bus Gift Set 67399

The original of all present-day vans and transporters dates back to the
platformtruck used in the late 1940s for internal transport at the Volkswagen
works at Wolfsburg. It inspired the Dutch importer Ben Pon with the idea of a
transport vehicle. At the end of the 1940s VW developed several prototypes for a
roomy vehicle suitable for transport purposes. As none of the names they had in
mind for it was available for unrestricted use, the new vehicle class received
the name Transporter . From 8th March 1950 the first generation of the
transporter went into production. The truck with its typical V shaped front and
split windscreen was available in various versions, including a minibus. The
technology was based on the Volkswagen Type 1, so called Beetle so that the T1
had an air-cooled, 4-cylinder, horizontally opposed engine. This reliable rear
engine had a capacity of 1.2 litres which was increased to 34 hp in 1961. The
deluxe version of the minibus, the special nine-seater model, is still known as
the Samba Bus and, with its oval roof windows, very comfortable seats, a folding
roof and very many chrome parts, has an unmistakable automobile charm.
