From reconstruction helper to cult object
Germany’s most successful commercial vehicle has its roots in the post-war period – it was available from 1950 as a simple, reliable, spacious van with just 25 hp and a top speed of 80 kph. That was all that was available, and that had to be enough.
Over the years, requirements grew, and the “Bulli”, as it was quickly called in the vernacular, grew with them and adapted: Various body styles appeared, and in addition to the closed panel van, there was the station wagon with three windows on each side.
“Barndoor” – this is the English term for a kind of barn door. The engine compartment flaps of the first Volkswagen buses felt like a barn door. This is how the nickname “Barndoor” came about in the Bulli scene. It stands for the bulk of the T1s produced at the Wolfsburg plant until 1955. With the introduction of a tailgate in the spring of 1955, the engine compartment flap was reduced in size – and this ended the era of the “Barndoor”. In 1956, T1 production then began at the new Hanover plant.Today, a Barndoor – T1 is one of the most valuable Bulli vintage cars.
