Hi Chris,

thank You very much for the hint. Then it must be a Phänomen Granit 25 H.

Best regards

Hi Rich,
I couldn't resist. For our non-American friends who may not know, Bob Seger's "Like a Rock" was the Chevrolet truck TV commercial theme song back in the '90's.
Well done Bert, that was a tough one.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Rich, hi Max,

thanks, but without the hint it would have been impossible for me to ID this vehicle.
Here my next question: who van ID this bus of the Wehrmacht, former Reichspost?

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
I think it is a MAN. It looks similar to a Z2 but the Simplex rims lead me to believe it is heavier. The F4/F5 chassis has these rims I'm not sure if they made it into a bus. Am I at least on the right track?
Cheers,
Max

Hi Bert,
After some searching I came across this book advertisement picturing a MAN bus fitting your description. Unfortunately still no Type number!

Hi Max,

very good! You are on the right track. And You are right: it is not the type Z 2, not the type F 4/F5. But the pic of the bus You posted is excellent, exactly the type on the pic I posted. Please, go on!

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
I'm not really confident in this answer but is it a Type MP? If not maybe someone else can step up and grab this one.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,

excellent! You got it exactly! My compliment, because it was not so easy to ID this vehicle as a MAN bus.
Here a good pic of such a bus (source: "Reichspost-Album" by Volkhard Stern).
Please, go on with the quiz.

Best regards

Bert

Thanks Bert,
That certainly was a challenge, at least for me.
You may be able to tell from this next Quiz problem that I am running out of conventional vehicles to post:
