From 1948, Volkswagen became an important element, symbolically and economically, of West German regeneration. Heinrich Nordhoff (1899–1968), a former senior manager at Opel who had overseen civilian and military vehicle production in the 1930s and 1940s, was recruited to run the factory in 1948. In 1949, Major Hirst left the company—now re-formed as a trust controlled by the West German government and government of the State of Lower Saxony. The “Beetle” sedan or “peoples’ car” Volkswagen is the Type 1. Apart from the introduction of the Volkswagen Type 2 commercial vehicle (van, pick-up, and camper), and the VW Karmann Ghia sports car, Nordhoff pursued the one-model policy until shortly before his death in 1968.

Wheels Approved did an amazing job on my car, I mainly communicated with Dan but all the staff that I came across were friendly and professional. Did little bits to my car that wasn’t on the job i.e screenwash that had been sitting in my boot for months which was very thoughtful and helpful! They gave me a lovely new courtesy car to use while mine was being fixed. All in all the services is 11/10!
