Production of the Mercedes-Benz 10/50 PS type Stuttgart 260 Kübelwagen started in 1929. The early variant can not be differentiated from the Mercedes-Benz 8/38 PS type Stuttgart 200 Kübelwagen, outwardly. Only the exact caption on the shown photo allows the identification as 10/50 PS type Stuttgart 260.

Beginning around 1934, the Mercedes-Benz 10/50 PS type Stuttgart 260 got its final design. Note that the spare wheels were now attached inset into the front fenders. In place of the spare wheel mounting on the rear, a solid towing hook was fitted.
