The Volkswagen Type 2 (AKA Transporter) was the second automotive line introduced by German automaker Volkswagen. It is the forerunner of modern cargo and passenger vans.

The first generation of the VW Type 2 with the split windshield, called the Microbus or Splittie among modern fans, was produced from March 8, 1950 through the end of the 1967 model year.

The Microbus was also called Kombi, from German Kombinationskraftwagen (combination vehicle), i.e. both a passenger and a cargo vehicle combined.

    Growing up, I always knew the VW bus as “Combi”. Now I know where that name came from.
