Not many people remember that after the war Philips had to come up with a solution to get people to the factories. There was simply no material available to do this. So they came up with the idea of the Vipre. In the morning a personnel carrier, at day time the truck did its heavy duty, and in the evening it switched back into a personnel carrier.
The Daf Museum fully restored the Vipre and is now a proud member of their collection. For the occasion we created some information panels to tell its history. In the meantime we are working on a big exhibition about the infrastructural developments of an industrial city like Eindhoven that will take place by the end of this year. So stay tuned.
