When, in the early days of the German economic miracle, the demand and the need for a multi-purposesmall transport vehicle was growing ever greater, Volkswagen, with its VW Transporter, had just the rightvehicle on offer. Available in the body variants of delivery van, bus, flat-bed truck and Samba microbus, theVW T1, lovingly known in Germany as the „Bulli“, was the ideal vehicle for a wide customer-base. Aftersuccessful advertising, even as early as the 50s based on widespread closeness to the customer, inventiveadvertisers very soon found the T1, ever-present in the traffic at the time, to be an ideal mobile advertisingplatform that, because of its unmistakable design, also came across as a good friend. From the mid-50s, themost attractive and creative advertising T1s were those operated by the Schwäbisch Hall Building Society.Under a wind and weather-proof Perspex dome, a miniaturised new housing estate was presented to futuresavers and builders. 15 of these eye-catching advertising vehicles were in use throughout Germany on behalfof Schwäbisch Hall until well into the 60s and, whether in the daily traffic or in front of many bank branches,they made everyone aware of the building society idea and the slogan „A house builds something else“.
