Back in the 60s and 70s, the streets were flooded with VW Beetle police cars. Not only in Germany, but also in other countries around the globe. The VW Beetle police car could be found in various versions: black and white, green and white (Germany) or red and white.
The bumper mounted spotlights were obviously an addition, and we presume holes were drilled in the roof to mount the PA system on the roof, along with the familiar blue light – and we suspect there may be a few more holes in the dash where the radio gear would have been mounted. Under the front bumper sit the sirens to alert the populace that an underpowered cop car is on the case. The Beetle was not equipped with seat belts, like many other cars in that period.
