Why 1973 and not 1972? According Wikipedia http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/VW_181 the Mexican assembling -all with elephant foots- started already in 1972. The 181s, sold in 1970/71 in the USA, were all locally (where :??: ) mounted CKD-kits from Germany.

Yes, I saw that. I'm referring to that sentence in the Wiki-article:
["Ab 1972 wurde der VW Safari komplett in Mexiko gebaut. Die aus dieser Produktion stammenden Fahrzeuge sind an den überdimensionierten „Elefantenfußrückleuchten“ wie beim VW Käfer 1303 zu erkennen."]

I don't know when did the USA offically received the Volkswagen Thing. I am not certain that the Wikipedia has the correct information :/ IIRC, I haven't seen the actual Volkswagen Thing with the 1962-71 Type 2 taillights sold in our market :think:
