Last year, I posted this 12p. brochure (see the 'literature'-list), and from that i quote: "The spare wheel that is stowed in the front would act as an impact absorber in the case of a head on collision thus adding to the safety of the vehicle occupants". So the maker of that ad below is wrong, the 181 is safe... very safe! I bet Ralph Nader didn't took a look in the front trunk.
Feldjäger... fieldhunters, it sounds impressive, not?A nice picture of the backside of a Bundeswehr 181 with all the military options: 2x blackoutlights, 1x blackout for license plate, antenna, light for reverse drive, MP decal, Feldjäger plate.

This one is standing in the Volkswagen Museum, a Mexican 181 from 1980. Must be one of the last built. American model.
vanishing in the Ardens... from rust till dust.
A picture 'd'époque'... from the good old days of military service. Clearly visible are the elongated mirrors that were specific for the 181. Notice the difference between a left and a right mirror!
