Kubelwagen replica kit

Retro Thing reports on a Kubelwagen replica kit:
The Intermeccanica Kubelwagen is a Canadian made replica of the WWII military utility vehicle designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen. The updated version is built on a tubular steel chassis and one-piece composite body. It includes modern luxuries such as an effective heating system, optional air conditioning, vinyl interior and a choice of 75, 100 and 140 HP VW powerplants. Prices start at $16,450 for a basic kit, expect to pay substantially more for a turnkey vehicle.
