After 17 years in production, the VW T1 Transporter was getting rather long in the tooth and ever more competitors were trying to secure a place in the lucrative small transporter market. So it was that, in August 1967, Volkswagen 1967 presented the second generation of the VW Transporter, the T2. Compared to its predecessor, the T1, the T2 was a complete and thorough-going new development. With its newly developed 1.6 liter engine, delivering a powerful 47 hp, its revised independent suspension and an elaborate, double-jointed, semi-trailing arm axle, the T2 had extraordinarily docile handling, well able to hold its own with contemporaneous private cars.
