    I believe there is a commercially available reprint of that publication available for much less, "TM E9-803, Volkswagen for the Wehrmacht, 1939-1945, Type 82 Kubelwagen," a detailed examination of a German Jeep captured by the U.S. War Department, by Dan Post, 1972, Post-Era Motorbooks, Arcadia, California, 91006. I have a copy if you are interested.

    This is Just an outstanding Site. A person comes here to ask if $ 1k is to much to pay for a manual he is looking for and the Gent's here just pop out with free downloads!!!!!! I really Love this site!! You Guy's are AWESOME!!!

    I also love the Kubelwagen. I cannot afford a real one but always thought about picking up a VW Thing and converting it!!!!

    Lol I had the same idea once, but went for a Willys MB instead.
    The 'Thing' wasn't too great a vehicle.........

    I notice the date June 6 1944 as being a rather auspicious one? .. still not worth the extra $800+ though is it? .... what it has done is inspire me to and get an old Manual ( think it is written by a Dutch outfit, though in english) I lent a mate about 10 years back,he only lives 2 minutes from here, it has all the US and British heavy vehicles used during the war ... I'll upload a few images later tonight

    I think the later German military (post war models) are probably an easier conversion?
