This picture was posted in the events section for a VW club in Iran. Check out the hard top and the solid doors. Shocked

Interesting!
I wonder if the windshield can be lowered; there's definitely a seam there.
Side windows are also unique.
It almost looks like the weight of those "custom" bumpers is twisting them down.
I'd bet it's pretty loud inside. The driver might need noise cancelling headphones in there!

I've never seen one like that before.

That is the same as the blue/green one in Austrailia(?).. there was a thread on it a few months ago. Appears to be factory built.
I had a CJ5 with a steel hardtop(removable), and it was Stupid loud in there. I imagine you'd want Plenty of sound deadening in this Thing to make it somewhat pleasant.

Found it...

The roof is a slightly different style, as well as the lack of rear 1/4 windows on the white one....

I like the way these guys travel!

The rifle may not fit in the brackets due to four guys in the back seat.

Gives me an idea for my extra doors if I ever find a hard top.
