From humble beginnings, the classic air-cooled Volkswagen family has earned a place in the pantheon of legendary vehicles. When it finally discontinued Beetle production in Mexico in 2002, the company had built over 23 million examples of its iconic "people's car.” Along the way, Volkswagen produced many iterations of the original concept, including vans and buses, pickup trucks, Karmann Ghia sports cars, and Notchback, Squareback, and Fastback sedans. These vehicles and many more are covered in The Complete Book of Classic Volkswagens, a beautifully illustrated reference guide to some of the most important, collectible, and iconic vehicles of the twentieth century.

The history of VW automobiles is just as colorful as the hues they were manufactured in, and this book illustrates the full story. German automakers originally sought to supply their countrymen with an automobile that was easy to mass produce. By 1938, they finalized the design for the VW "Bug"--the first rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive configured car.  You will find a section devoted to each year and model, with a discussion of the history, marketing, production, body style availablility, starting serial numbers, basic sepcifications, along with both black and white and color photos.  Buy now to find out the history of the Classic VW Volkswagen.
