it is the type SS 100 N model 38. It was not produced for the Wehrmacht, had the typical civilian cab and a platform structure at the rear. Here more information about this vehicle:

Umbau von Panzerkampfwagen 35R (f).
Some of the captured R-35s reached the eastern front, but not as tanks. Their turrets were removed and a new makeshift artillery tractor was born. 110 of these vehicles (officially called Umbau von Panzerkampfwagen 35R (f)) were dispatched to artillery units operating the sFH 18 howitzers and the heavier 18 cm K 18 cannon / 21 cm Mrs 18 howitzer in February 1941. They were used with success and by March 1942 the Wehrmacht still had 52 of these tractors on active duty.

You are right. That´s a Kaelble tractor type ZK 3 or ZK 4 (ZK 3: engine with 3 cylinders = 55 hp, ZK 4 with 4 cylinders = 72 hp). Here a pic of such a tractor (source: "Taschenbuch Deutscher Zugmaschinenbau" by Wolfgang H. Gebhardt.
