... and their interior

These brochures, as did many others, tried to show what kind of people use a given version of the 601.
The normal is ideal for the young couple (look at the background), the Universal is the ideal van and the De Luxe for the party-people.
There were mixed versions, such as the DeLuxe Univeral which should seem as a contradiction but it was not. The "wealthy" party-people was the role model for this version! The Tramp was the open-top cabriolet used by extravagant artists, farmers, foresters. Its army version was called the Kübel with slightly different interior. The car pictured is actually the latter.

Now let's see a few technical details for the 1966 model year (it was the same throughout the decades).
