VW bus, 4WD
And that's it

Gustav Mayer, the boss of VW's company vehicle store, was a travel enthusiast. And when traveling in his own VW bus, he missed some ground clearance and a drive. Gustav went to talk to colleague Henning Duckstein and in 1975 they made the first 4WD VW bus. They did that with a two-liter engine and the things they had in hand. Plus their craftsmanship and enthusiasm.

The project was canceled in 1976 by the VW bosses because the bus line that was used was in its late days. Because ... Because, because, because. A few more have been made. Where from 1 as a camper. Kewl!


There is still 1 survivor from that time. It is in the museum. Where have the other protopty types gone?
