VW Kübelwagen / Schwimmwagen Manual (Haynes 5779)
VW Type 82 Kübelwagen/VW Type 128/166 Schwimmwagen
By: Chris McNab
Designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen, the Kübelwagen and its amphibious cousin the Schwimmwagen were to the Germans what the Jeep was to the Allies and were used widely by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS in the Second World War. In recent years the Kübel and Schwimm have acquired something of a cult status among military vehicle collectors worldwide. Author Chris McNab examines the design, construction and use of these classic German utility vehicles, as well as reviewing today’s fertile market for restorations and replicas.
