Extensively restored Volkswagen Type 181 for sale
The Volkswagen Type 181, also known as The Thing or Kübelwagen, has achieved a true cult status over the years. Originally, this Jeep-like car was designed for the military, but soon it was seen as a pleasure car and so civilian versions were also built. Finding a nice VW Type 181 is rare, especially in the condition this classic is in. The Type 181 that we offer for sale here is an extensively restored example. In the period of 2018-2019, this VW was body-off restored by father and son in the father's car company. All bad parts have been replaced with original repair parts that they found after a lot of searching at various fairs. No expense has been spared to make this a top model Volkswagen 181.

Volkswagen Type 181 in very good condition for sale
The Volkswagen Type 181 that we offer for sale here is really a sight to see. It is a European version with the popular small rear lights. During the restoration, the classic was provided with a fresh coat of paint in the beautiful colour beige with black accents. It is also equipped with an all-weather soft top that you can close completely. As soon as the sun shines, you can quickly remove the removable side windows from the car and fold the soft top. The Volkswagen Type 181 offers space for 4 people, so you can enjoy touring with friends and family. Can you already see yourself driving this unique classic car?
