VW Border Patrol

The BundesGrenzschutz (German border patrol) used a few vw 181... to scare off the ones on the other side, I suppose. You might not notice it at first but those BGS-181 had a rather surprising feature: they had extra windows in the soft top! I have never seen these on other 181.BGS

VW Camat

181 kits were sent around the world. Almost 6.000 of those kits were assembled in Indonesia where they were called Camat and mostly used by the local authorities. Now these cars are retired, and have become public fun objects! Damn sweet right hand driven 181s!camat
