Italians using captured Jeep?

I tried searching the internet, but with no luck.

More were seized in the aftermath of El-Alamein battle: since the Italian and German armies were left with few vehicles and supplies (or none at all), many soldiers volunteered to ambush convoys so as to get both of them.
Never heard about Jeeps in the post-43 fascist forces, although the Germans surely had some: I imagine that RSI soldiers might have seized a few of them, but they were likely damaged beyond repair.

Yes it was. When supplies were not coming through both sides made use of captured materiél. Especially in Africa (the "Jeep theft" I mentioned took place there).
Yes Glenning. It must have happened more than once.

started with a foot switch down on the left side floor plate. It still had a
key to activate the electrics, though There might have been
production variants on this.
PS.: Cool picture, Gian!

A picture of a captured jeep is presently up for auction on the German Ebay:
And...oops...The "Kubelwagen" is actually an AS42 car. So the patrol is Italian.
