    Default Uncles' SchwimmWagen LOOK!

    Okay, here is my Great Uncle Toffik Ramsay's 44 VW SchwimmWagen! It has the original Panzer Faust and MG42 machine gun(not shown in pictures) Disregard the last pic as it is actually a 44 Jeep parked behind the VW.

    It must be the other two!lol He's getting pretty old now but he used to take it to shows all the time.Now it just sits in a dark warehouse gathering dust. It still runs, though. Every once in a while it gets taken for a ride around the property.

    Hi Dean, superb! He is a very lucky man to own such a vehicle.

    I recognised the Jeep engine in the final pic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Great looking Schwimmer. Go to VW-Schwimmwagen type 166 - The VW-Schwimmwagen Registry and count the registered ones in the USA.
