Not yet Holger, but my friend who owns the Hanomag ++ will eventually have to find out. Restoring of these vehicles have carefully started. Don't know of anybody else who delivers these bodies and Mr Lehar seems to be well recommended:
I know Lehar sells the complete repro body for a Le Einheits Pkw I think only the 4 passenger body. I do'not know his price but a frend told me appr. 8000,- euro's ? The best is to ask him by mail he understand german and his doughter understands English. I do'not need a body my Hanomag has a original body.
I am new here - thanks for this nice forum! I have been rebuilding and collecting German ww2 vehicles for some years, and I really appreciate a forum - to get in contact with others with the same interest - and to share information. I have a typ 40 Stoewer in storage, that I will start to rebuild this summer. I am currently finishing my KDF 82, and will have it on the road in the spring! The last details missing for my Stoewer is the speedometer, oil and temp instruments - so if anuone got spare ones please contact me! Regards / Nick...
Finally a forum for lepkw owners. But there is also BMW in this family, so the headline should be Hanomag/ Stoewer/ BMW. I am restoring a Hanomag `39 with R180 stoewer engine. I have restored the chassis and will soon start with the bodywork. My lepkw is going to be a kfz2/2. I cooperate with 6-7 other persons in Norway/ Sweden to rebuild these cars, and this is a big help for us because we can share and/or build parts for each other. I encourage others to cooperate also, to get more of these cars back on the road. Hans Erik

Welcome Nick and Hans Erik !
Do hope you will enjoy and use this forum, and feel free to tell everyone else abouth it!
Nick, a tip would be to put in a string for what you need in the "Buy" section. I guess more people will notice it then.
Well, I just wanted to welcome you !
Chers Rolf adm
BTW: Here is a photo from my collection (as I pic from to use in the magazine Mud & Snow). Notice the camo paint so it must have been taken early in the war. Anyone know when they stoped using this camopaint?
It looks like the registration plates says WH, so they must be Wehrmacht. I read somewhere that the Hungarian (Rumanian?) army bought Type 40 as well (thinking of the uniforms of the drivers) so a wild guess could be that the vehicles had german plates during transportation? (I know, this is a weak point of view, ha)
