Yes, I'm wonder what's up with the rings around the door handles too

You can see it clips around the stock door panel, so yes, some sort of aftermarket clip-on protector.

Those old cardboard door cards don't seem to hold up too well either.

This is the 1st time I've ever seen a Kubel with shiny tyres! A give away to the enemy when glistening in the distance.

If I could go back in time, I would have ordered one of each at the show.
On reflection though, an Englishman in Austria at that time might have had trouble collecting his order & getting it back home!

it also looks like a very early kubel with the fuel filler neck on the front 1/4 panel
