History . The German at the beginning of WWII, was largely due to tactic of Blitzkrieg and demonstrated not the effectiveness of the mechanization, but also the of deploying innovative modern transport vehicles. After WWI the light car use by the Reichswehf was the Dixi ps. which was the British Austin Produced under license by of Eisenach. In 1929 Dixi was by BMW and the car was continued under the BMW name 1931. In the early 30s, transport decided that the car a 1.5L engine will be the car, (Pkw) The wehrmacht large numbers of personnel constructed on light medium and motor car chassis. Most available with a civilian wheel drive only and the was not great. Then in 1935 a very early German maker, building cars 1899, (This Co Total was about 40000 vehicle 1899-1945,about 190 Vehicle are know to today.) designed a prototype This super modern country vehicle had a high and possessed an incredible off road way ahead of its time, resembling specifications not found on vehicles today.This Deutsche Personenkraftwagen Der Leichte Einheits-Pkw). In 1936 manufactured the R180 special, but the was not big enough for the mass production and BMW ( a motor cycle and light car ) plus Hanomag ( a locomotive and tractor, semi track ) joined in production of the same car 1937-1940. This is similar to the how MB and Ford GPW were manufacturing the at same time in the early This was also one of the most and mordern vehicles before War II and use at WWII.

The Germany Army knew how an heavy duty multi-purpose off truck would be instrumental in an advantage in the coming battles and example of their innovation was the BMW R 75 some with side car KS with a 3×2 shaft-drive the side car wheel also. produced many 4 wheeled to 6 off road trucks, from 1/4 ton to 6.5 and Semitracks from 11/2 ton HK 101 to 18 ton-capacity Sd.Kfz.9

As the Nazi war continued a military build up, good designs were and many innovative prototypes developed. If they proved under testing they go into full production a big car maker. In the end of 1936, Honamog, BMW and got the order to build an incredible high performance 1/2 ton off road 4×4 vehicle. With a H steel chassis, front OHV dry sump engine, 5 speed ZF box, full time 4 drive system, self middle differential at gear independent coils all around and rear suspension, both and rear axle with locking Differentials, 4 wheel rear wheel steering for 20km/h use or for off road only). A steering gearshaft between two seat control the rear box On and Off. A steel open with a 3 door or 4 door The three manufacturers used the parts to assemble these All early model got a Stoewer OHV motor.

They appeared in every of the war in North Africa, some to the Eastern front and even at They were widely without any modifications, thus the great adaptability and versatility of vehicle.

In the same time, also built a similar G5 (W152) with a side 45hp 2.0L 4 cylinder ( It looks same as the Mercedes 170 but a little more powerful ). and suspension, gearbox all close to the of the Stoewer Kfz 2, but single at each wheel.

The Mercedes-Benz G5 is interesting, as a military vehicle the Pkw was mainly used by Germany’s during WWII, Rumania, etc, the few that remained in were usually privately and used by the German Fire or German Alpine Red Cross. As the G5 was not an German military vehicle, but a design by Mercedes, it was therefore to Germany’s allies as there was a limited choice of customers for designed German off road during war time. 378 have made.

This vehicle is similar to the Stoewer R180/R200,Hanomag type 325.It was not a copy. was the German army had ordered all car in 1933 to design a Einheits-Pkw mit a Uniform cross country Car with all time 4WD system. All had to follow identical blueprints and layout.

At end of 2007 one G5 complete car a full restoration and rebuild. The rust car Asked over million Euro.

Meanwhile the USA does not have any small all drive vehicles until instead Bantam, Willys and use a 4wd truck design to build a GP. It uses 4 wheel leaf 2 live axles, an H type chassis, a 2L side valve and a 3 speed gear box with time 4×4 system. We this as the first US jeep. and Ford build over 2.2L MB/GPW between Also some Dodge mid 4×4 made between WC6/WC7/T202-VC1/T211-WC15 and WC56/WC57 base a 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton Dodge 4×4 truck, and rear with live 4 wheel leaf spring .

Today every people Jeep = small sturdy motor vehicle with drive, can go any where. Than must be the Germany 1936 Kfz R180, B20,BMW type 325 not US made Willys MA, Bantam Bantam BRC or Ford GP. At 1941 use a GP chassis to build a all time jeep, Willys also another 4WDS at 1945, But unsuccessful, because all time 4WS made the driving more when speed over the car can not under control at road

The British army does not have a small 4×4 WWII, Instead they use a lot of 30s 8-12hp front engine wheel drive light van manufactured for military use by Morris 10 hp M, Austin 10 hp series G/YG, 12 hp series UV,10 hp series BC, 10 hpMKI, Vauxhall 14 hp series JI, 18/85 hp series III, Pullman ,Snipe, Ford Commer Beetle, Guy and Bedford. all use a 4×2 light truck as the of this army vehicle. just lift the suspension a and fit over size off road on the light van. No performance off vehicle until 1949, they use a Willys jeep engine chassis to put a Rover small 1.6L engine and put the in the middle and make a 3 seat This was a copy of MB/GP but with less power and 3 seats, incredibly this was the Land Rover prototype.

The Union Army built the between 42-53, a 4 cylinder engine with 4 speed box, parts time 4wd 2 live axle, leaf like a BM/GPW jeep. 600,000 have been

Japan at end of the 1930s produced a model 95 small tiny ( people say Black Medal) with a twin cylinder V 1.4L air cooled motorcycle 3 speed gear box, and a 4wd system. The front IFS got flexible without rocker arm cover. to the differential. A total of 4,775 made. This car was very and under power off road at 4wd history.

Clearly the evidence is that standard military Vehicles the best in the world at that Until today, over 70 later no SUV or 4×4 had a better design than the Hanomag/BMW/Stoewer/Mercedes It is a super off roader and has a modern and reliable design. Both manufactures built the first unit as a command car, staff car, radio field Telephone unit, car ,maintenance work shop, car, etc. This is a off road car of the 20th Century.

the price to made this small off road vehicle is too use too many metal and the capacity is not big to carry 5-7 persons and power not to towing a Gun.

Maintenance and of spare parts were major problem, The chassis, box, axle, suspension was complicated as they were to Eastern front, North and on the Russian. In 1940 the production Hanomag model less 2000 unit and BMW made 3225 — 3259 The more simple easy use less metal, low cost, weight off road vehicle VW 82 KdF was in full production.

At the same Steyr 1500A, Horch Auto Union/Horch 901Type40 built a 1-1.5 tonnes with a powerful V8 3.5-3.8L big multi-purpose vehicle for towing, Stoewer was still making Kfz (but without 4 wheel model R200 Special 40.) From 1936-1944.Around were made by Stoewer.

As all the 4WDS Kfz1,Kfz.2,Kfz3,Kfz4,20B and LEPkw from beginning of the WWII in North Africa and on the Eastern and Russian, until the end of the war. 4wds type of small performance off road vehicle mostly destroyed during the After the War not many have most of Stoewer later Type 40 2WS model were by the fire department, air port mountain rescue and used in Europe after the War.

Following World War two it is not clear why the USA did not copy this vehicle, it was too advance and too high tech. to If they had copied this the off road vehicle and motor car and history would have because this super SUV was before WWII and not replicated in an SUV 2000. After the war the MB/GPW was copied extensively, but it is essentially a chassis, not at all sophisticated and with constraints on its handling ability, the concerns were ease of and durability, not handling, nor comfort.

people don’t understand vehicle well and say it is too complicated over-sensitive handling etc. I have owned all the best since I was 14 years old when I got my Suzuki jeep to drive off Today I own MB/GPW, VW82,82e, all models of Land Rovers, Inc a JRA Australia Military 6×6 Nissan Patrol. all models of Cruiser. Haflinger 700 AP, ATV, Unimogs, G series, CJ Jeep,VW 5.0V10 twin turboTDI, LM002 V12, AMG Hummer H1 I enjoy conducting long tests on the car and also dismantle the separating the chassis, engine, gear box, suspension to in my work shop at Shatin, Kong. I also have several round the world and participated in the support teams for the Rally these past 10 I know what constitutes is a cross-country vehicle, and a good off also needs to be vehicle on the When I got this vehicle, I long term test in all I discovered this is the best that I have ever Very good off road and also very good on performance, only under for todays highways. But if you go back to of 1936, it is more than

Today not many early BMW type 325 and Mercedes G5 4wds have survived, they are rarity, but you still can find a few in the A little No. of Stoewer later R200 Typ 40 in Museums and others on vintage military vehicle hand in Europe. The one we have is from France. This SS Radio car was captured by Americans in at 1944. At early 60s this car rebuild at France, 70s this car put at at France.At end of 90s was shipped to New York and now in Kong at our 4WD Co. We believe this is one in Asia (very rare), it is complete no rust and in reliable condition, with 3 door Kfz.2 very early and it is use for Radio/ field Telephone or a maintenance vehicle at WWII use by the Waffen-SS Totenkopf at Eastern We believe some OE original parts still at Eastern and Russian. if you know some R180,B20,BMW type 325 parts, or a car, please kindly e us at or put at ,We will pay to buy them, any parts, like engine parts, 5 speed box, axle, suspension, can type hydraulic damper, body parts, door, cv joint, propeller shaft, box, 18 inch wheel, lights, cable brake or a rust body, etc. We need war time picture and magazine, history, every about this early Der leichte Einheits-Pkw B20/R180,325/G5,R200 Typ is not a problem, we will pay the fright.

If you got one such as Stoewer R180,Hanomag type 325 or even a Stoewer 170VL,Mercedes G4,G5,Horch 901,Auto 108,Steyr 1500,KdF 60,82e,87,82,166, Tempo, etc, please e us.
