Porsche Designed Kübelwagen — Volkswagen Kubelwagen

Surprisingly enough, this German version of the Allied Jeep was based heavily on the Volkswagen Type I (what we know today as the Beetle) another of Ferdinand Porsche’s legendary designs. The initial concept for the Kübelwagen (literally translated to mean “bucket-seat car) was proposed by none other than Adolph Hitler himself in a 1934 discussion with Porsche about the possibility of a military application for the aforementioned Volkswagen. However, the project did not formally move forward until 1938. At ...

All About The Volkswagen Kubelwagen   Tech Marking — Volkswagen Kubelwagen

All About The Volkswagen Kubelwagen If you love vintage cars, or if World War II-era history fascinates you, then you may already know about the Kubelwagen. Based on the familiar Beetle model, this jeep-like military vehicle was manufactured primarily in the early 1940s for German military use.

Kubelwagen — Volkswagen Kubelwagen

Model, Text and Photos by: Tony Bell Introduction Next to the Willys Jeep, the Kubelwagen has to be one of the most iconic utility vehicles of the Second World War. Based on specifications issued in early 1938, the prototype Type 62 was designed by Porsche engineers based on the VW Type 60 ‘KdF-Wagen’ (a.k.a. Beetle) chassis and engine. The Type 62 prototypes underwent field trials in November 1938, and modifications to the design resulted in the production standard Type 82. The Type 62 had a body style reminiscent of it’s Beetle sibling, but one of the changes demanded by the German Army was that the appearance be more military, the result of which was the archetypically ...

1944 PKW Type 82 Kübelwagen August 2012 Backward Glances The American jeep got most of the vehicular headlines in World War II but other vehicles fulfilled the same light reconnaissance and personnel transport role. On the German side, that vehicle was the Pkw (Personenkraftwagen, personnel carrier) Type 82, known by German soldiers as the Kübelwagen (bucket car), or Kübel for short. The Kübel had its roots in the Volkswagen, or people’s car, a government-initiated affordable car project given to Dr. Ferdinand Porsche in 1934 to fully develop. The first cars appeared in 1938 but militaristic priorities soon overshadowed the project and few were actually delivered to German citizens ...
