Originally conceived in 1947, the Volkswagen Type 2, officially known as the Transporter but referred to by many as the Volkswagen Bus (US) or VW Camper (UK), was a panel van introduced in 1950 by Volkswagen as its second car model.
Derived from the Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle) and using, until 1971, its upright air-cooled, rear-engine configuration, the VW Bus was the forerunner of modern cargo and passenger vans.
When VW stopped delivery there in 1980, they had shipped nearly 5 million VW Transporters to North America. As of 2011, updated versions of the Volkswagen Type 2 remain in production in international markets.

The VW Transporter

Known by most by one of its many nicknames, including "Bus",  "Samba", "Minibus",  "Microbus", and "Bulli", the VW Type 2 was a popular family alternative to its smaller Type 1 brethren, the VW Beetle and the Karmann Ghia. It came in a great variety of configurations and trim levels, including a panel van, 11-, 13-, 15-, 21-, and 23-window versions.

Brand-new air-cooled replacement engines for the Volkswagen Bus from Darryl's are every bit as efficient and reliable as the original. And, every engine is protected by our exclusive, 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty

The VW Campmobile

Widely known in North America as simply the "Camper" or "Pop-top", the Volkswagen Type 2 Campmobile was popular with families with an adventurous spirit.

There were a number of VW camper models produced by secondary coach builders, including Westfalia (or "Westy"), Dormobile, Riviera, & Adventurewagen.

Like its more modest sibling, the Volkswagen Campmobile was powered by the air-cooled VW boxer engine
