The KdF-Wagen was the first example of the Volkswagen Beetle. Between 1937 and 1944, a small quantity of KdF Beetles was supplied to minor officials in the the National Socialist German Workers' Party. This particular vehicle, however, was destined for the Red Cross chief in Berlin in 1943.
Several years back, the car was found in Poland and listed for sale in a Polish provincial newspaper in 2000. The current owner, Dr. Robert "Mac" Jones, hired a connoisseur to go take a look at the car upon seeing the advertisement, then discovering that it was in fact a real KdF Beetle. After he purchased the Beetle, Jones had it taken to Germany to Peter Schmalbach, the leading expert on Wehrmacht vehicle restorations.
Using original KdF parts, the Beetle was completely restored to its original likeness, as it was then debuted at a major Volkswagen show, to much acclaim.
