These pictures show the Drews convertible. Drews was a little factory in Wuppertal, Germany. Although the car could be ordered in official Volkswagen dealerships, only 150 of these cars were built. The first and the second picture may be taken at a Motoshow in Rheydt 1949, where the car was presented for the first time.
