History Of The VW Splitscreen Transporter (T1)
In 1962, VW produced a heavy duty version of the Type 2, load capacity was up from 750kg to 1000kg, the 15” wheels had been replaced by wider 14” versions, and the engine had been upgraded to a 42hp 1500cc engine. This model was such a success that the following year the 1200cc transporter was discontinued.
’62 Buses also had new “fisheye” type indicators replacing the “Bullet” type ones that had been used on the Bus and Beetle since VW made the switch over from Semaphores in 1958. 1963’s Type 2 had a more powerful 1493cc 51bhp, the ’67 Beetle used a different variant of this engine to produce 54hp.
