Hi Markus,

to the pic You posted yesterday. Sorry, but that´s not a Polish Polski FIAT. I think it is a German Krupp. On the front of the motor hood You can see the emblem of Krupp, the three rings. I assume, that it is the type L 3,5 or LD 3,5.

Regards

Bert

Thanks Bert,

You're right again. The Krupp emblem I can't see but in retrospect a Polski FIAT 621L's hood louvres start closer to the radiator mask and the front wings are farther from the cabin than with the Krupp in the photo.

Regards,
Markus

Hi,

Are you sure they are Desoto's, the Adler Autobahn is very very similar, I am not sure which maker they are.

cheers leonard paul,

Hi Guys:

The car is definitely a 1934 Desoto.
The truck, hard to see really, is I think a Chevrolet of 1939 or 1940 vintage.
I am trying a new Photo Edit program and will see if I can sharpen it up.

Hola Sturm:

Thanks so much for the Bedford photo. The only one I have seen with this body and I have seen a lot.
Looks to have been produced in a small series by someone and a nice job at that.

Thanks for posting the Beute Bedfords - they look to be based on the 15 cwt MW rather than the OXD. There appears to be at least 4 of them and it looks like they are in the post Feb 1943 colour of 'dark sand yellow.' I doubt the photo was taken in Feb 1943 as it took time for the grey camo to be intoduced, so a later date is likely; perhaps winter 1943/44.

Hi Bill,

Believe you're right. Chevy side louvres are visible in Holger's photo.

Markus
