This year marks the seventieth anniversary of the first production of Volkswagen's ubiquitous Type 2, a design credited to Dutch importer Ben Pon. His concept, penned in 1947, was to place the driver over the front axle and the engine over the rear, allowing for maximum load capacity and manoeuvrability. The result was a vehicle that survived with numerous modifications until 2013.

For many, the quintessential VW Type 2 is the earliest model, whose twin front windscreens gave it the nickname 'splitscreen' or 'splittie'. Built in Germany until 1967 and then under license in Brazil, the Type 2 came with a variety of body styles including commercials, a Kombi with removable rear seats, and the enduring camper.
