 After a 56-year production run, Volkswagen is ceasing production of its second most iconic model 

 

Microbus. Kombi. Transporter. Camper. Whatever the name, the Type 2 is one of the most iconic models ever to be built by Volkswagen. Not only did it open up the possibility for families to hit the open road, the the Type 2 established itself as the poster car for surfers and hippies alike. Since its introduction more than five decades ago, Volkswagen sold 1.5 million copies of the Type 2 in every shape and form — from the iconic mini bus to a crew-cab pickup.
