Here are some pictures of my Kubel
replica project. This is a Kooble Kar that I am
putting on a standard 64 Beetle chassis. Please

is the body as we picked it up. We towed it home
with our 2000 Eurovan. Below is a picture of the
64 Beetle Chassis as we got it. Drove it around
the back yard. The pan was stripped and everthing
new installed. The chassis even came with the
original 1200 cc engine (correct number).
pictures show the standard Beetle transmission.
After I figured out that the tires would not
clear I later installed a 65 Bus tranny. These
trannys have a gear reduction box at the ends
which when mounted in the Beetle (tought task)

took runners/adjusters off some old Beetle seats
and welded them to the bottom of the Kooble Kar
seats. This allows you to slide the seat back and
forth where the kit would have you drill holes
through the pan. We even fixed up a roller pedal
in place of the old gas pedal.
