KUBELWAGEN TYPE 82

MEET GERMANY’S JEEP

Production Years: 1939-1945
Country: Germany
Number Produced: 48,464

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.
