The Kubelwagen was the equivalent of the American Jeep
during WWII. It was first designed by Dr. Ferdinand
Porsche and his son Ferry as a "buggy" for fun. With
the war looming on the horizon, the "fun car" became a
military vehicle. The base is from the KDF (the future
Volkswagen). Only the rear wheels are driven, but the car
is very light and behaves well in rough conditions.
Our Kubelwagen was manufactured in 1943 and was
carefully restored in France right down to the blazon of
Rommel - the palm trees - for the Afrika Korps.
