Not even sure it's a 1303, with black bumper(s) like a 1975-77 1200 S (S due to the vents), also no back-up lights

yes, the 1303 had always chrome bumpers. This is a 1200 povery trim line for the Austrian police (see the plate)

Police vehicles were simple? Could be a 1303 still, but a 1974 1303A, 1975 (no longer 1303A) still could offer 1200 engine but I fail to find the black bumpers. So a 1974 1303A is possible, a look at the front would tell what version it is. [Image: smiley-sad009.gif]

Interior and trim line yes. As my brother-in-law, a cop nearby Berlin (his second, but officially allowed job: http://www.kdk-filmservice.de/ ) told me, they had no comfort-extras, but some police-specific extras, as extra strong skai-leather seatcovers and simpler, but better cleanable carpet. Plus the usual stuff, as holder-frames for the radio set and holders for automatic pistols.

But often the engines doesn't belong to the original trim-lines. My brother-in-law has confirmed that, also a friend, who had worked for 31 years in the VW Passat-factory in Emden. Sometimes even tuned engines were taken, especially for (often civil) Autobahn-patrol-cars, but for regular patrol cars, too.
I remember, how astonished I had been, when I saw in the early 90ies a damaged VW Passat Variant [35i]in a VW garage. It was optically completely a semi-basic CL-version, simple steel wheels, orange front indicators, simple interior - but it had a G60-engine :wow:
And I remember, when a police-VW T3 has followed us, after a fellow with his really not lame Irmscher-Monza has passed a traffic light at "cherry-green". I told him "Ah, they never gonna get us, I know these lame 55hp-Diesel-T3 from my Bundeswehr-times - they got us! The T3 had a complete basic Transporter outfit - but the 136hp fuel-engine...

Great story! Police vehicles have also had a more powerful engine up here. That's what I had in mind when I suspected a 1200 S [Image: smiley-hug004.gif]

@ingo: I see you have discovered what the Polizei are using those sleeper cars with more powerful engine fitted in :D

That what the Southern moonshiner do with their cheapest car they can find with the most powerful factory engine fitted in [:ddr555]
