[FS - NSW] 1971 181 Kubelwagen


1971 Kubelwagen 181
Body off restoration over 20 years ago.
Motor and gearbox also rebuilt.
Then stored for about 20 years.
Registered and driven last 3 years for maybe 1 or 2 thousand klms.
Some wear and tear but very good condition.
No longer required, needs new home.
$20,000- asking would be below most restoration costs.
Can deliver for $1 per kilometre one way.

engine is probably 1600 twin port..?? if original..

the preheater pipe covers...
were left off by most home mechanics..
and maybe other mechanics..??

don't see many fitted these days...

so, they are rare...

Brisdubba and/or Dutchyvan,

Did you guys get my PM re your offers?

No, not sold, still available

vwjon,
Yes it has been converted, not by me though and I have had it about 25 years. I assume all of these were made LHD?

some were made as a RHD and these were 182's, the plate clearly states yours is a 181 (all 181's are LHD) Who ever did the conversion has done a pucker job, even the wipers have been swapped over, (new screen surround?) and the padded dash top looks like a RHD unit. a really great car.

There aren't many of these around.

Not all 181's were LHD - in Mexico they made 181's with RHD for export - mine is a factory 181 RHD which was exported to Indonesia - this was the National car there for a number of years - all were imported, mostly from Mexico!

181's were left hand drive, and 182's were right hand drive. This follows the VW convention that any parts on the vehicle on the left side end in odd numbers, and any parts on the right side end in even numbers. That is of course if they are specifically handed left and right. If they are interchangeable on the right and left, or there is only one such item on the car, then they will end in odd numbers. Or, to put it another way, all parts end in an odd number except right side specific parts.

Mine is a genuine RHD 1972 which was made in Germany, but shipped to Indonesia as a CKD (Complete Knocked Down) kit in a consignment with 12 others, and assembled in Indonesia (in central Java near Solo I believe. This was the case with a number of different imported vehicles,order to avoid vehicle import tax. These days, manufacturers just build new factories "in country" to achieve the same aim, but using imported parts, so really amounts to the same thing.

There was something like 20-30,000 Safaris (Trekkers/182's/Things built in Indonesia in this way.

Being a 1972, mine also has swing axles and reduction boxes, rather than IRS as per the USA market ones built in Mexico. USA unless didn't start until 1973, earliest.

History lesson over.....

Awesome ....... I have a 1976 Thing 181 RHD built in Java ... probably the same CKD as you speak of ..... I have researched the history of my car thoroughly and it has always been RHD ..... imported via Mexico hence the IRS ..... addendum to history lesson ..over

[FS - NSW] 1971 Kubelwagen


Just a bump to refesh the Kubelwagen for sale.
Need a bit more room for latest purchases.
Review the pics above and make me a reasonable offer.
Asking about $20,000-, far less than restoration costs.
