Edit 05/12/12: I have found out a bit more about Belgium built beetles!
Here is an extract from an article on coachbuild.com:
“After WW II, Pierre D’ieteren managed to obtain the sales rights for VW and so they became the official Belgian distributor of that German manufacturer from 1948”. “D'ieteren bought a piece of land in 'Vorst' for the assembly of the Studebakers and soon this was followed by the assembly of Volkswagens”.
