Obviously an "after-market" conversion, a beute Bedford O-series.

Hi Ilya,

excellent ID. The exact designation is type "4,5 LHG 448". Here a good pic of this truck out of the book "VOMAG - Eine Legende in Bildern" by Christian Suhr and Ralf Weinreich.

Regards

Bert

Hello Bert,
thanks for a good illustrative picture. Note the absence of a part of a cabin near the gasifier column (in Norway). The identification was easier because I've already read about something similar in "Za rulem" magazine, #19 of 1940 (an online version here, it seems that the front grille is different), but I was not sure about 444 or 448 modification. What was the difference? Length of the body?

Hy Ilya , privet,

thank You very much for Your reply. The difference between type 448 and 444 was the wheel base:
the designation 444 or 448 means: both with a four cylinder motor, and then the different wheel base: 44 = 4,40m, 48 = 4,80m.
Here a pic of the shorter type 4,5 LHG 444 dump truck (source of the pic: "VOMAG - Eine Legende in Bildern" by Christian Suhr and Ralf Weinreich).

Regards

Bert

Hi Markus,
This is the same Gatsonides that designed the Gatsometer.
He is the guy that provides the police with ammo for my speedingtickets.

Although it is often stated that gas-producers were only to be used in rear echelon situations, this convoy has all the appearance of a forward area movement.

A very curious, home-made, sort of contraption.
