A real Kubelwagen? Many VW enthusiasts dream!
This dream can become reality with this real beast!
Kubelwagens should not look nice and by the letter with every nut and bolt lined in same direction. That’s not the way they’ve been build and even less how they were used!
Kubelwagens been produced to fight, to survive as long as it could, but especially to capture more land from the enemies, as fast as it could… but also save lives of soldiers so they could fight longer and Kubelwagens moved them around as quick as possible.
The expected life (or survive) time of a Kubelwagen was 3 weeks at the front… This example did exceed a little life time expectation….:)
But the good thing is, this baby looks like the real thing, no, it IS the real thing!
Rough and used, with necessary dents, scratches and traces of use…
Enough originality, KDF logo’s everywhere, but also a very cool car ready to use and enjoy!
For sure not all is correct and pointers and buffers can (and will) tell what’s wrong, but there’s also a lot right, and the car has a huge fun factor…
Do You want a Kubelwagen to look at, or a Kubelwagen to use and play? I’m always going for the later one, put this baby in the dirt and have fun!
Underneath it has a very nice pan, correct front and rear axle… and what’s important to me, never converted to hydraulic brakes, but still operates on its original cable brakes!
Dressed with “just enough” period accessories to make it believable… at first glance You could believe it left the battle fields only yesterday…
The Kubelwagen also comes with some spares, like an original Gun holder, a lot of spare bulbs, a book, and some other metal parts.
Also included in this sale is a period Wehrmacht Jerry can, an ammunition box and an original skid plate, mainly in original paint, for the buffers… or just to enjoy…:)
Power plant is a correct 24.5PS engine, dressed with some correct and some wrong parts…
But its a strong engine, fires up when You turn the key and will bring you everywhere You want to go, also off-road!
Do You like Cog Wheel VW logos? You can find quiet a few on this car!
Look the underside! I think this looks the whole deal, don’t you?
The secret of moving power with limited horsepower, transmission with reduction boxes, not only gives more ground clearance, but makes your car double as strong because of the reduction of the gears!
We took off a valve cover to check inside the engine, everything looks hyper clean, and we saw also the Cog wheel VW logo to assure its all KDF!
In a general overview we agree this car is NOT a car for buffers and pointers… This is a car for a real enthusiast, that loves the looks, wants enough originality to sleep well at night, but before all wants a car that looks right and can be used, on and off track.
This must be one of the best looking Kubelwagens we ever had.
Owning Kubelwagens and Schwimmwagens for over 25 years and used them accordingly do You know a Kubelwagen with its rear wheel drive goes further in rough terrain as an all wheel drive Schwimmwagen brother? You will be amazed how far a Kubelwagen will bring you! With a little off-road knowledge You can easily go all off-road tracks and leave many modern four-wheel drive cars FAR behind! Believe me or not but they DON’T like that! Especially not when You ask them afterwards what they need four-wheel drive for actually…:)
A lot of fun ahead, that’s what we sell here…
