Dutch 181

Bart's ride... a nice 181!The color of the soft-top is not that common in Europe. This color was called Iltisgrau in the 181 catalogues. fall

Offroad test

Always fun to browse through those old magazines.I found a German magazine from 1972, reporting some testresults from a bunch of offroad vehicles. The vw 181 didn't score well, in comparison with the 4WD Range Rover, Land Rover, Nissan and Aro. Obvious... the 181 has 2WD and less HP.hobby 181
