1964 Volkswagen Microbus

The Volkswagen Type 2, also known as the Transporter, began gracing the roadways in 1950. Within a short amount of time, these vehicles grew in popularity and were often seen traveling the United States highways. The engine was mounted in the rear but was still air-cooled. Access to the engine was simple and made repairs rather easy. Driving was calm and quiet since the engine was in the back the driver was not plagued with engine noises.

The popularity of the Transporter continued to grow and by 1964 was accounting for over 63% of all import vehicle sales. Over 307,000 examples were sold during that year. The most exclusive of the offerings was the 21-Window Deluxe Microbus with their split window front windscreen and large sunroof.
