After WWII Kohlruss has built a small series of new bodies on VW Kübelwagen chassis, using a few parts from the Steyr 55 (f.e. doors). Two Kohlruss VW are known to have survived.

A 1954 Volkswagen Transporter Bus (Type II) - coachbuilt by Hans Kohlruss survived.

Image

The wreck was found Austria in 2012 and has been sold to UK in 2014.
After overgoing an impressive restoration - whilst preserving as much as original metal and paint as possible - the bus made it to a VW Bus meeting in Austria in July 2016.
On its own axle and with its own power!

Image

Visit the --> Kohlruss facebook group <-- and see the pictures of the restoration.

My topic in another, vw related forum - all about Kohlruss buses - many vintage photos:
--> Click here to visit the extern forum topic about Kohlruss Buses <--

If you have any material about Kohlruss - no matter what it is - feel free to contact me. :)
I am in regular contact with the owner of the Kohlruss Bus in UK - he is happy about every kind of information & so am I.
