Hi Jose,

to Your question about the Opel P 4:
only a few units used the Kübelwagen on the chassis of n Opel P 4. But these vehicles were not alike, because many coachbuilding companies were involved. To the second pic You posted: that´s a so-called "Sirenenkraftwagen" (siren motor vehicle) or "Kraftfahrsirene" (motorized siren), produced by order of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Reich Aviation Ministry). Here a pic of this special vehicle (source of the pic and information: "Opel Militärfahrzeuge 1906 - 1956" by Eckhard Bartels). And the second pic on the site "autogallery" in a better quality (source of the pic: Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr, Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr" by Werner Oswald).

Best regards

Bert

Jose and Bert,
It seems that some ex-panzer attrappe P4s were re-purposed as light cars after they ceased to be useful in the training role. From the windscreen construction I think this is one, and from the uniforms it dates to mid-late war.
Cheers,
Kerry.

Hi guys,
Interesting discussion. Here's another ex-attrappe, I think.

Hi Sturm 78,

that´s really a great pic. Thank you very much for posting. I think it is the type 275 or 300. Here a pic of the type 275 out of the book "Büssing Lastwagen 1903 - 1971" by Wolfgang H. Gebhardt. A little advice: the light trucks of Büssing-NAG got the byname "Burglöwe" only from 1935. The truck on Your pic has the elder cabin from the year 1932/33.

Best regards

Bert
