Hi Luftflotte,
Sorry for the spelling error. I meant to say Galizien, the Galician area of occupied Poland under the Generalgouvernment. Here is the list of OST plate designations I have from http://www.autogallery.org.ru/m/nomde.htm:

Ost- (1939-1943) Generalgouvernement
IOst - (1943-1945) Krakau
IIOst - (1943-1945) Lublin
IIIOst - (1943-1945) Radom
IVOst - (1943-1945) Warschau
VOst - (1943-1945) Galizien
Cheers,
Max

I believe this is a Berliet GDRA with wood-gas modification. Compare it to a standard GDRA (same seller) and you can see differences in the front bumper mounting.

Hi Sturm 78,

that´s very difficult to say. There are some modifications because of the gas generator system. After checking some of the American trucks I think it could be a Studebaker model 1936.

Best regards

I think you're wrong. Compare the look of windscreens and bodywork on these machines.

Hi Victor,

thanks for Your reply. You are right, the normal look of of the windscreens and the normal US-made bodywork doesn´t fit. But I think that this must be a truck exported to Belgium or the Netherlands, where it became a special cab by a local coachbuilder. For comparing here a pic with nearly the same cab of a Chevrolet type 1936.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Victor!

My compliment, good work! That can be the solution, not my Studebaker.

Best regards
