The Type 2 (the Beetle was the Type 1, for the record) was Volkswagen’s do-anything people mover for the last 63 years. Originally introduced to the world in 1950 and officially ending production by VW in 1979, it started life as a sketch by VW importer Ben Pon and — after getting the coefficient of drag down from a barn door-like .75 — it eventually evolved into the Lovemobile we know today.
