Westrand Car Show - 1975 Volkswagen Kombi

1975 Volkswagen Kombi


Following the story of Volkswagen demands huge amounts of concentration to understand their model numbering, style changes and multiple production plants. The original and most famous Volkswagen was the Type 1 or as we all knew it – The Beetle.

The Volkswagen Type 2 we know as the Kombi and in later models as the “Caravelle”. This is where things start to get a little complicated. The first Type 2 or Kombi was the T1, which was produced from 1950 to 1967. It came in various guises from passenger vehicles to panel vans, pickups and double cabs.

Then in 1967 the Type 2 T 2 was launched in Europe. It marked the beginning of the single windscreen and was obviously technically more advanced than the Type 2 T 1. Yet it seems that in South Africa we continued producing the T 1 until at least 1975.

A fine example of a Type 2 T 1 will be at the Westrand Car Show on 31 August. It is red and white and goes by the name of Lulu. She is owned and carefully handled by Quintin Germanus who will give us the low down on if and/or why VW were producing both T 1 and T 2 models at the same time.

The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form. Remember its a fun day, so don’t take it too seriously.

Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.

The Westrand Car Show is an alcohol-free event and any person found to have in their possession or to be consuming alcohol will not be admitted and/or will be asked to leave the premises of Dr. Havinga School.
