1945 Volkswagen Kubelwagen KDF Type 82 25 HP Fully Restored.
Bought by me 20 years ago out of a prestigious elderly German collectors military vehicle collection. Completely restored by D. Crompton of MI, from 2002 to 2004, the best German military vehicle restorer in the US. Kubelwagen was restored back to exacting detail for originality and is painted in German factory tan, the color it would have left the factory in 1945.
Original body number 49003, original front axle out of Normandy France area and I believe is in original camo paint, original kdf steering box and original period correct 25 hp engine completely rebuilt.
Chassis post war built up around chassis number 500XX with New floor pans, post war gearbox and hydraulic brakes which I left in for driving safety purposes as recommended by Mr. Crompton. These could be taken back to cable brakes but I decided not to and opted for safety. New canvas top, seats and side windows, light covers were made by Beech Wood Canvas of NJ, well known US military vehicle canvas specialists. Comes with birth certificate from VW Wolfsburg showing February 12 1945 production delivery at Kassel Germany. No expense was spared by me restoring this car. It would be the centerpiece of any WWII military vehicle collection, Military museum or a re-enactors dream car. Very few of these were produced in 1945 as the war had taken it's toll on production facilities making these late war Kubelwagens quite desirable. Buyer will get Kubelwagen, birth certificate accessories mentioned and complete three ring binder of letters from Mr. Crompton to me and photographs of restoration. It has always been garaged and never been in the rain. It is ready to be enjoyed.
