The story of how the VW "Bulli" came to be is unusual. The Dutch general importer Ben Pon gave the general impetus for a van. The approval for the idea was given by Colonel Radclyffe of the British Military Administration. The new VW director general Heinrich Nordhoff took up the plans and worked vigorously for its implementation, so that the first prototype was finished in March 1949. Despite manifold problems, the production started in March 1950 with an initial selling price of 5,850 DM.

The VW T1 safari minibus was originally delivered to the USA. Reimported to Germany, a specialist company completely disassembled the classic car and rebuilt it. There are several hundred pictures of the professional restoration. After that, about 2,000 km were covered to guarantee process safety. The classic car is approved in Germany. This minibus is among the best restauration results ever achieved.
