The history of the Foundation’s Kleines Kettenkraftrad Sd.Kfz.2 ‘Kettenkrad’ can be traced back to Austria in the 1970s, where for reasons unknown it was completely dismantled. The body tub (which carries the chassis number) was then sold in 1980 to a collector in Cologne, Germany, who kept it until 1986.
In 1986 the body tub was again sold to another collector, this time in the UK. This collector acquired most of the missing parts from a variety of sources and sold the still dismantled vehicle in 1995 to another English collector. At this stage it was in a very poor condition. Its bodywork, mechanical and electrical parts were then partially restored before being purchased by the Foundation in 1995.
