"Land Mine Gas Tank"

Recommended Posts

I just came across what was described as a very rare accessory for early Volkswagon's called a "Land Mine Gas Tank, made by a company called Quickly, Hammerich & Co. It's an accessory gas tank that fits into the spare tire rim and takes the place of the hubcap. I was told the reason they called it a Land Mine Tank is because it look's very similar to a WW II, land mine. It holds 8 liters of gas and has a brass cap and pull out spout. Its painted hammer-tone blue and was probably restored at one time. Anyone know anything about them, Im told they are very rare and desirable.
