Hello VW Fans.
The german Fire, Police, Ambulance and Civil Protection vintage VWs had lots of interesting and necessary accessories from Bosch and Hella.
For your vintage Fire Department, Police and Civil Protection operational T1 and T2 Bus, Beetle, Type 3 and 181 Volkswagen you need a low and high fanfare horn system (tatütata sirens), a spinning lamp with blue cover, an emergency control tone sequencing relay, a switch and brackets to mount the parts.
Below you find information about Bosch and Hella emergency accessories and pictures of vintage Fire, Police and Civil Protection VWs which I saw over the years.
