Hi jose,
Thanks for posting that pic of the seldom seen Kfz. 301. Here is a rear view showing some detail of the erection mechanism of the radio mast.

Interesting group photo, especially the Umbauwagens, from the grainy photo looks like a Horch 830 based? Very big box-purpose?

Hi Jose,
Here's another one.
B-N 350 and Sd.Ah.111 trailer.jpg
I don't see Mercedes-Benz 2750 front wings, radiator edges look a little more "rounded". Not sure about this one but I have them all as B-N 350.

No doubt these are Büssings but it is hard to say the model, at least 3 candidates here: 305, 350 and 375.
Furthermore there are two models on the pictures.

If judging from the trailers on tow, probably the engines are different.

Hi Max,

an interesting question. I recognize four flaps on the side of the motor hood. So this truck has the diesel engine type GD 6. So it could not be the type 550 (engine type FD 6 only). So it could be the type 650 or the predecessor type 502 for 6 1/2 tons.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Thanks for the information. An interesting point about the engines. What exactly is the difference between the GD 6 and the FD 6?
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,

the GD 6 is a Diesel engine with six cylinders, 135/140 hp and a cubic capacity of 13.539 ccm,
the FD 6 is also a Diesel engine with six cylinders, 110/120 hp and a cubic capacity of 12.517 ccm.
You can distinguish the engines by the number of the flaps on the side of the motor hood:
four flaps = GD 6, five flaps = FD 6.
