Hello Bert,

Sadly I can neither confirm nor deny the identification. But, like you, I would very much like to know the make and type. I have been trying to id the photo I attach for some time, without result. To my eye it is the same tractor/trailer combination.

Thank you for posting the question, it is the closest I have come to date, and, hopefully, one of the contributors can give us the answer.

Thanks again,
Kerry.

Hi Bert, Kerry.
Comparison with Skoda 304.
Note the similarities (steering gear, wheel hub)

Hello uncle,

The similarities do point towards an "upscaled" Skoda 304. The parentage does not seem to be in doubt, judging by your excellent comparative evidence.

One step closer, thank you uncle.

Regards,
Kerry.

Hi Slava, hi Kerry,

thank You very much for the pic with the Skoda 304 for comparing. For me it is the confirmation, that it is a vehicle of Skoda. But, sorry, I cannot agree with You, that it is the type 304. You are right, of course, the steering gear and the wheel hub are very similar, but I think it must be a heavier type. Have a look on the wheel (ten bolts), the tyres (bigger), the motor hood (higher).
Here the type 656 for comparing.
But I want to thank You again, Slava, that we are one step closer to the solution with Your help.

Best regards

Bert

Hi there,
your truck is Skoda 506. A rare one, there was not many tractors. here you have pics of one with gas generator, and some of low frame variant 506N. Note rear wheels, Skoda 656 had 3 axles, rear two with single wheels. Actually, I can scan for you page from old automotive book where is photo of Skoda 656 chassis.

Hi Arnie,

thank You very much for Your reply and especially for the correction and the pics of the type 506. It would be great if You could scan the photo of a Skoda 656 chassis.

Best regards

Bert

Hi to all,
here is Skoda 656. Chassis pictures scans originated from automotive school book published in 1946, bus scans come from Encyklopedia of Czech buses and trolleybuses. Bus pictures show gasoline powered Skoda 656 and diesel Skoda 656D, these two were used by Prague city transportation company. The backview of chassis aparently show diesel variant (shape of front fendes and placement of exhaust).

I'm from Czech republic, and my kink is old public transportation, so I may be help with some of Czech softskins. :)
