Hi Sturm 78,

an interesting question about the Volkswagen.
Image 1: I think it is the type 92 SS, because this type was delivered to SS units. It could also be the type 82 E. The type 92 got the designation 82 E from April 1943.
Image 2: I think it is the type 51 produced after the end of the war for the British troops (former type 92/82 E). Here pic with Volkswagen type 51 (source of the pic and the information: "Volkswagen Militärfahrzeuge 1938 - 1948" by Hans-Georg Mayer-Stein.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,

Ummhhh. I am not sure about the image 1. According to Wikipedia : Type 82/7: Three-seat 'Command car' made up of a Type 82 chassis, fitted with a Beetle body and roll-up canvas roof section. These three-seaters had a co-drivers seat with fully reclining backrest for the commander.

The vehicle of my image seems to have a canvas roof....

Any image of the VW Type 87 ??

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for Your critical reply.
There are other designations in the book "Volkswagen Militärfahrzeuge 1938 - 1948" by Hans-Georg Mayer-Stein:
type 82 - 7: three-seat command superstructure on the normal Kübelwagen type 82
type 82 - E: chassis of the normal Kübelwagen with the limousine superstructure, called "Geländekäfer"
Mayer-Stein: "It is possible there were built only three Allrad-Käfer (four-wheel-beetle): two vehicles in 1941 ..., and another vehicle in 1943 in Stuttgart."
Here three pics of this cabrio-limousine with four-wheel-drive, October 1943, with the designation type 98 out of the book "Volkswagen Militärfahrzeuge".

Best regards

Bert

Hi guys,
In my archives I have the first pic Bert posts here labelled as Type 87, although I have no longer a source reference. AFIK the 87 also had the kübel/schwimmwagen chassis.:?
The pic below purportedly shows the Type 87 but I'll welcome any corrections.

Hi Sturm 78, hi Max,

in the book of Mayer-Stein there is the information, that newer investigations are leading to some doubts, that Volkswagen built 564 four-wheel drive beetles, because all chassis with four-wheel drive were completely recorded under the designation type 87, also these with a Kübelwagen superstructure.
The designation type 87 is a generic term, specified by additional designation with numbers:
type 87: chassis with four-wheel drive
type 87 - 0: Kübelwagen superstructure (four seats)
type 87 - 1: Kübelwagen superstructure (three seats)
type 87 - 7: closed superstructure limousine (command car)

Best regards

Bert
