Hi, are these available? I'm in need of an early style wing top.

Cheers,

Hellenic Navy VW 181 (Information taken from the forum Dastank.com)

The first example has Hellenic Navy registration number '254'. Note that is has air intake muffs. Rear view of '254'. It has the small rear lights, as fitted to all military production VW 181s.

The second example, number '278', lacks the air intake muffs. Note that '278' has the later 'elephant feet' rear lights. Military spec VW 181s normally have the small rear lights

Those are the same lights I am collecting to put 5 on the front leading edge of my hard top as running lights and additional front turn signals. I am replacing the filament bulbs with LED units. Will be very sharp looking when i get them done.

Hey Rob...
Check out my build thread. I used '63 bug turn signals up front. Obviously you'll still have the big light base on the fender, but it's not terribly obvious to most... Only real Thingers will notice.

I got mine from a local vw parts house, new for maybe $50???

Good luck!
