This huge truck, the first photo is the same like on Kfzderwehrmacht site, where is it listed as ERF (type unknown). These fancy streamlined fenders dont look much like an military item? The crude looking plank box body looks like a typical German field modification.

Hi Jose,

You are right. It is a civilian truck. It is an ERF type C.I. 562. I could find this pic in the book "British Military Trucks in Wehrmacht Service" by Jochen Vollert. Here the text to the pic: "Another example of an impressed civilian truck of British origin now serving with the Wehrmacht is this ERF C.J. 562 6x4, and featuring a field-improvised German-built body."

Hi all,

Any idea about the exact purpose of this Chevrolet COE truck. I think ex-Belgian, probably...

Hi Jose,
It looks pretty much like a standard US cab 1940 model to me. I can't tell you anything about that bed though.
Cheers,
Max

Max, you're not right. This is typical Benelux specimen: 1940 front end combined with 1939/40 Antwerp cab (note the stampings on the door).
Cheers!

Hello, ilfil.
OK, I'll buy that.
I was using the following reference pic and it looked similar, at least at the time. I must have had my beer goggles on. :lol: Sorry jose.

Hi Max,
Yours is genuine American, no doubt.
Here is the cab in concern for your future reference:

Hi ilfil,
Thanks very much for that. I missed that moulding detail. This illustration will go right into my reference file along with your pics on how to easily tell a '39 from a '40 without counting grill bars. At least I got that part right!
Cheers,
Max
