Volkswagen T1 classic car
The first generation Volkswagen Type-2 (with split windshield), was produced from March 8, 1950 through the end of 1967. Like the Beetle, the first Transporters used the 1100 Volkswagen air-cooled engine (1,131cc, DIN-rated 18 kW, 4-cylinder 'boxer' engine mounted in the rear). In 1953 this was upgraded to the 1200, a 1,192cc 22kW. In 1955 a higher compression ratio became standard.
The early versions of the T1 up to 1955 were often referred to as the "Barndoor" thanks to the huge rear hood. From model year 1964 (when the rear door became wider) the car was referred to as the T1c. 1964 also saw the introduction of an optional sliding passenger/cargo compartment sliding door.
Production of the T1 in Germany ceased after 1967 but continued in Brazil until 1975. The Brazilian T1s were not identical to the German models, although they did retain some of the characteristic features of the classic T1a, such as the cargo doors and five-stud 205mm PCD rims.

Maintenance on a classic car
Of course every car needs maintenance, and it can sometimes happen that something needs to be repaired. It is no different for a classic car. Because you like to keep your classic car in top condition, a good garage is important. Any garage can provide you with maintenance, but sometimes you just need that extra bit of specialism, then you can choose to take your classic car to a classic car workshop where they focus on 1 brand or type of classic car. The mechanics often work with the same classic cars and have thus specialized in maintenance or repairs on those specific classic cars.
