    Default Kübelwagen Manual

    Hello Gents,

    I am interested in this manual for the VW Kübelwagen. The seller want's +1000$ for it. It's from 1944 and made by the US war Department it looks like. Question is, is it really worth that kind of money, and is it period? The seller writes it's reasonably priced for people that can afford to buy a Kübel.

    Original manual, but even if I owned a kubel, I would not
    want to spend that amount on it. The price should not
    be based on who can afford one. IMO, a seller with
    that kind of attitude is an _ss.........!
    Regards,

    I agree Steve. What kind of an attitude is that? If you can afford a Kübel, you can afford this....

    That's like saying if you drive a Rolls, you should pay more for gas !

    Though there would have been a very limited amount printed,
    still nowhere close to $1000 unless it was an original
    German manual.

    $200-$250 at most, and even that might be
    a bit high.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Wouldn't go over 50$. The man is an other one of those people who can't call a K98 from an Enfield, but found something in his grandmother's attic and he thinks it's the holy grail of historical collecting. Bovington probably has a copy that they would send you a scan of for a few quid, alternatively: 144 page 1944 US Army German VW KUBELWAGEN Volkswagen Operator Service Manual CD | eBay


    EDIT - Found a transcript on a webpage: German Volkswagen 1944 Technical Manual

    Here it is just scanned in (assuming this is what the Ebay guy is selling, just downloading it and putting it on a CD!) just download it yourself. You can find MANY such manuals on this site, tanks on down
    (1944) TM E9-803 German Volkswagen
