The first generation was produced between 1950 and 1967 in Wolfsburg. It was with an engine from Volkswagen, an air-cooled 1100 bhp flat four. In 1953 the engine was upgraded to 1192cc and 30bhp. In 1959 it was upgraded to 40 bhp, and the higher compression ratio became a standard. Nowadays those are very rare. They were also called T1a, T1b, T1c. In 1962 is introduced a version able to carry up to 1000kg with 42bhp DIN which made the previous one to be removed. In 1963 a 1493cc 51bhp DIN was added for the US market. The production stopped in Germany in 1967 and was still active only in Brazil, with some differences. The model was also known as 11-window. DeLuxe is introduced with arguably between 15 and 23 windows.
Samba is known as the most luxury vehicle of T1 produced first in 1951. It had 23 windows combined with two pivot doors and fabric sunroof, created with the idea to transport tourists at the Alps. The design was made so it could prevent the driver from the sun.
