The Volkswagen Type 181, also known as Volkswagen Kübel, was a two-wheel drive, four-door, convertible, off-road, military vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen from 1968 through 1983. Originally developed for the German Army, the Type 181 was also sold to the public, as the Kurierwagen in Germany, the Trekker in the United Kingdom, the Thing in the United States (1973-1974), and the Safari in Mexico. Civilian sales ended after model year 1980. The Volkswagen Type 181 was manufactured in Wolfsburg, Germany (1968–1974), Hannover, Germany (1974–1983), Puebla, Mexico (1970–1980), and Jakarta, Indonesia (1973–1980). The Type 181 shared its mechanicals with Volkswagens Type 1 (Beetle), its platform with the Karmann Ghia and its concept with the company's renown Kübelwagen, which had been used by the German military during World War II. The "Las Brisas Hotel" in Acapulco ordered a total of three special built Volkswagen Type 181 to drive their guests to the beach. A Volkswagen dealer read an article about these cars and informed about the possibility to import some of these "Acapulco" cars to California. This kind of beach cars were built in the 1950s and 1960s by Fiat or special coachbuilders and known as the "Fiat Jolly". A total of 100 cars were built for Volkswagen retailers in the States. This Acapulco-edition is based on an European Volkswagen Type 181, which is very special as all other were built to US specs. The car is in very good condition, no rust and a very solid and good running engine. It's great fun to drive this with your friends to the beach near your summerhouse in the French Riviera or to show in your museum! Much more special than the well known Fiat Jollys!
