What is a Type 87
The VW Type 87, also Commander's car called, is a version of the KdF-Wagen with all-wheel drive, which was built from 1941 to 1944 by the Volkswagen factory, especially for the Wehrmacht. The Wehrmacht referred to the vehicle as le. gl. car, 4-seater, 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle type 87. The all-wheel drive including the engine was taken over from the type 166 floating car. A total of 564 vehicles were built. In November 1946, the Volkswagen factory built two more commander's cars from remnants.

Vehicle description and technology
The Type 87 is an all-terrain two-door sedan. It is very similar to the KdF car, from which the body was largely taken over. Since the Type 87 has off-road tires of size 5.25-16, the fenders are wider than those of the KdF car. For this purpose, a metal strip was attached to the inside of the fender; the running boards are also correspondingly wider. In addition to the tank, a 20-liter petrol can is located under the front hood, where the spare wheel is normally located. The spare wheel lies above the 40-liter tank, the filler neck of which has been angled for this purpose. The body is bolted to the chassis. Almost all of the cars had a folding sunroof.
The commander's car has a floor assembly that is very similar to the KdF car, but with a larger central tube to accommodate the drive shaft for the front-wheel drive. The front wheels are individually suspended on two trailing arms at the top and bottom with torsion bar springs (so-called crank arm axle), the rear axle is a portal swing axle guided on trailing arms with a forward position on the outside of the semi-axles. The front axle has special steering knuckles to accommodate the drive shafts. It is steered with a screw spindle steering. The rear differential is self-locking. The drive power is transmitted from the engine via a single-disk dry clutch to a manually shiftable four-speed gearbox, which is extended by an off-road gear. The off-road gear is engaged together with the front-wheel drive via a second shift lever in the middle of the car. With the front-wheel drive switched on, the maximum speed is 10 km / h and the climbing ability is 75 percent. All-wheel drive is not suitable for use on the road because there is no center differential. The engine is an air-cooled four-cylinder, four-stroke boxer gasoline engine with a height of 1131 cm and is installed in the rear3 Displacement and 24.5 HP (18 kW) rated power. The maximum speed is 80 km / h.
Most of the cars delivered to the German Africa Corps had tropical equipment with special protection against dust on the fuel supply, air filter and electrical system. In addition, the tropical equipment also includes special balloon tires in size 200-16 for driving through sand, which are named Kronprinzenräder after the manufacturer.
