1943 Volkswagen Schwimmwagen

Dec 4, 2019

Used quite extensively by the Germans during World War II, the Volkswagen Schwimmwagen is one of the most sought after vehicles among VW enthusiasts.

An amphibious four-wheel drive off road machine, the Schwimmwagen is not only badass, it is extremely rare. Earlier this week a pristine 1943 Volkswagen Schwimmwagen became available for sale through OldBug, and this thing is a gem to say the least. The completely restored vehicle is sporting all of the authentic props from the 1940s including rifles, shovel, side mounted oar, and even has a machine gun mounted to the hood as well (non-operational of course).  The vehicle is equipped with a fully rebuilt 25 horsepower engine, and is ready to hit the lake for the summer season. There’s just one problem though. This genuine 1943 will cost you a pretty penny… $150,000.
