VW 181 / Trekker Insurance

The VW Type 181 goes by a number of names around the world, including Trekker in the UK, and Thing in the USA.

It was originally created as a military vehicle for the German army in the late ‘60s but was also sold to the public, amassing quite a following among VW enthusiasts.

A bit of a ‘Frankenstein’s monster’ the Type 181 made use of the widened Ghia floorplan (which was itself based on the Beetle pan), Beetle mechanics and a modified Kübelwagen style design.

Built by VW from 1968 to 1983 in Germany, Mexico and Indonesia, it was made available to civilians in Europe and Mexico in ’71; in America in ’72 and was also available in the UK for a short time.
