The Volkswagen Kübelwagen (Kübelsitzwagen, translated "bucket seat car") was designed by Ing. Dr.
Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen during World War II. It was based upon the Volkswagen
KDF car (Beetle) as a lightweight multipurpose car for the military. It saw action on all fronts
and was used by all services during the war.
I've recently added a Kübelwagen clone (Kooblekar) to my collection. Look for
more information and photos to follow... For a history of the resotoration and fixes click
