Thumbs up 1952 VW Kohlruss restoration video

Ya don't see these every day!

It had a KANSAS plate! Hard to believe this escaped to our side of the pond for a while!

I like it... I'd like it better with the luggage rack deleted. Oh well.

It looks cool, but I'm not sure to which extent I would prefer this over the stock design which seems to have at least better headroom in the rear seat area.

Stock 1952 Beetles are a dime a dozen. This is a Baby Steyr body-swapped onto a Kubelwagen chassis.

You said your no fan of the stock roof rack.

The Jim Dandy roof rack is a bolt-on but something similar could use a similar permanent attachment.
