Volkswagen classic

Heideveld Classics always had a weakness for all models of the classic Volkswagen cars. The technique of the Volkswagen cars does not have any secret for us. A very short piece of history about the VW Beetle and VW Westfalia:

Already in the twenties Mr Ferdinand Porsche made a proposal to develop a small car at a cheaper pricelevel. Unfortunately he did not became recognition. In the thirties Mr. Hitler interfered and developed a saving system for the german people, sothat they could afford to buy a car. It still lasted until 1940 before the first Volkswagen Beetle came out of the factory. The war came and the cars were used for military goals. After the war hundredthousands of german people had been duped and lost their money. However, the production of the VW Beetle went on, also because of the interest abroad, because people were able to buy a car against an affordable price. The VW Beetle would become the most succesfull model of Volkswagen, together with the VW Golf and VW Transporter.

After the war ist still was a luxury to go on holiday. However, the german company Westfalia had a good foresight and started in 1950 to build a camper out of a Volkswagen van. The Volkswagen T2 Westfalia became very popular for taking a holiday. Unfortunately Westfalia had to deal with financial problems in the seventies and this was the end for a nostalgic era. Nowadays there still is a lot of demand for a Volkswaren T2 Westfalia. Heideveld Classics does not need much time to find a buyer when we receive a Westfalia.
