As early as January of 1938, moves were afoot to produce a military version of the Beetle for the war that lie ominously ahead. There were many, many prototypes, but eventually two main vehicles emerged as the war-time KdF-Wagens.

They were the K�belwagen (literally, "bucketcar", but actually an abbreviated version of K�belsitzewagen, "bucket seated car") and the Schwimmwagen ("swim car"). The latter was an amphibious vehicle with a rear-mounted propeller for water navigation. Only 14,283 were produced.

The K�belwagen was much more plentiful and practical than the Schwimmwagen. It is an extremely austere, rugged automobile built simply for war-use.

About 50,000 were made. Survivng examples of both cars are scarce and very collectible. Production was from 1940-44 for the K�bel and 42-44 for the "Schwimmer".

I owned a Beetle in 1968 and drove it for over 150,000 miles. The amazing thing was that we had over 100,000 miles on the orinigal tires before I changed them.Thanks for making your site have enjoyed it will be back often. *** gzqlzidqw *** [url= *** mnlbmmlhgm *** ]mnlbmmlhgm[/url] [link= *** dgzpzx *** ]dgzpzx[/link]
