Yes, it has rust and has some collision at the right side, but at least this is not a bondo bus as many coming from Brazil these days!
What you see is what you get, the car is entirely original paint so for sure absolutely no camouflage.
Came from the assembly line a s a panel van and been converted from new in the USA to a camper van. Many different factories did the conversions… this one I’m not sure what company made the modifications, but any interior will fit…:)
Campervans been very very popular in the USA as they travelled so easy,and distances in USA have been always been large and far apart….
Being always a camper van the inside survived well, no messed panels here, only rust repair…:)
The fresh airbox is still in pristine condition
The rust is really only below, if you look the windshield frame its amazing good condition!
Look through it, look inside and imagine… my fantasy goes already all wild, does yours?
Underneath all is complete and ready to take apart, clean, rebuild and let function like it should, as this bus is never messed up we assume there’s a lot of fun work ahead!
Engine is in the car, the condition rather unknown…
How cool it looks already? At least with this bus You see what you buy!
Take me home, country roads, to the place I belong, play me and have fun with me, I’m made for that!
This is a cool cheap project, because whats wrong and missing reflects in the price… we sell this bus for cheap, in split window bus land that is!

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…

Are You ready for a super easy project?
For sure it needs work, but there’s no real rust, no place! All we could find was a little on the battery box and a very small strip on the right front fender, more than likely from rubbing the tyres. The rest of this body AND chassis or dry as a bone. The shape of the body reveals a dessert life, all life long! Rock solid and dry as a bone… This is by far the best You can find them, we’re very happy we came across this one and put our hands on it right away!
How cool is an early Ghia dash? The 911 steering wheel is a cool touch but miss the horn button. The seats are the original from the car and only needs new upholstery.
The corners under the rear seat are rustfree as well, the entire car is really rustfree!
Previous owner told us the engine ran, but its standing for so long and we think a serious service might be better first as try to make it run.
Look how dry underneath, all You can see is surface rust… don’t we like them this way! yammie…
Also rockers are all original and rust free!
What a beast! So happy we did find a good Ghia for You!
Nothing beats a small tail light Ghia, not hacked or messed up, just a pure “used” car… Thanks to dry California for providing this car to us!
