Sofie, the world’s oldest street-legal VW Transporter, celebrates her 70th birthday
So far, so good for ol’ Sofie. Seventy years ago, on August 7, 1950, the first-generation (T1) Volkswagen Transporter rolled off the production line at Germany’s Wolfsburg plant and into a life of service. After a breakdown in the 1970s, the Dove Blue panel van had more down time than she probably wanted, but Sofie is better than ever after receiving a much-deserved restoration in time for her 70th birthday.
She's the world’s oldest street-legal VW bus in existence.
