Included in these numbers are following factory original specials :

Karmann Gipsy 14 inch : 30

Dehler Profi 14 inch : 8

Dehler Profi 16 inch : 1 (car sourced by Busman)

This is the only factory original 16 inch i know that didn't come with the typical black fender flares. It does have the body cut-outs to give room to the 16 inch wheels but because of the Dehler sideskirts there was no room to fit the fenders. 

Tischer XN 16 inch : 1 (car sourced by Busman)

But two came in black which make them really special (both sourced by Busman)

  

 

Tristar syncro Henrymag camper : 1

16 inch tristar syncro : 1

It's no longer in it's factory original colours (see left) but it's a genuine 16 inch. On the right you see pics from ho it was when new. 

The Tristar syncro one could also get with alloy keyhole wheels. The rims were 16 inch BUT these were no 16 inch syncro's. The wheels in fact were not bigger than the 14 inch wheels since lower porfile tires were used.

16 inch Borco Höhns : 1
