    Default kubelwagen type vehicle?

    Hi all just digging through my really old backup discs and found my 2003 pics with an awful camera, found pics of what I thought was a german nazi kubelwagen in a car garage in my town here. Garage owner said it isin't a kubelwagen but based off it. Anyone know what it is? looks like a dutch import or something

    Gents, IMO opinion it is the military version of the VW type 181, and not the civilian version (Thing,Trekker,Safari) see here..VW Thing History 2 @ DasTank.com VW Thing Type 181 ...... the vehicle is on Dutch plates, It would appear that the Dutch (Netherlands) Army operated the type 181.
    Prost ! Steve.
