Hi Pawel,

that´s it! Excellent! I know, it was a difficult question, but You finally had the right answer. 12.600 of this Italian Fiat truck were licence-produced by the Polish company PZInż (Państwowe Zakłady Inżynieryjne) in Warsaw.
Here a pic of such a truck (source: ebay).

It is Your turn to go on with the quiz.

Regards

Bert

Hello Pawel,
I think that the car in your photograph is a Wanderer, probably a W52, possibly a W51 Spezial.
Regards, Rob.

Rob,
I accept this answer, as exported Wanderers were apparently different than those made on home market. It is W52, four-doors limousine, with Notek light. This hybrid is usually described as W52 Special. I did not insist to have precise answer, otherwise we would halt the quiz till Christmas (I am not sure of which year).
Over to you Rob, thank you.
Cheers,
Pawel

Pawel,
Thank you very much for that.
I don't think that identifying this restored Kübelwagen will be too difficult even though the Kübel version of the vehicle was quite rare.
Regards, Rob.

Hello Max.
You're quite correct, Wanderer W24 it is. My image is one of four, all of this restored vehicle, on the website 'film-autos.com' and there's a couple more photos on the website 'kfzderwehrmacht'. Quite a rare bird!
Well done and over to you.
Regards, Rob.

Thank you, Rob. Indeed photos of that type are few and far between. Thanks for that addition to my reference files.
Next here is another Kübel for consideration, not quite as rare a bird as the Wanderer W 24.

As Max said, rarely encountered. It is fascinating to see that at least one of these rare vehicles has survived. Photos of them in use are hard to find, here in Luftschutz service.

After over 400 views and not a single response :cry: it's about time to send this old Mercedes-Benz 10/50 PS Type Stuttgart 260 back to the shop for a new spare wheel.
Anyone is welcome to take up the Quiz with a new subject. Don't be shy. :wink:
Cheers,
Max

O.K. Max,

thanks for the possibility to post a a new quiz question. I think it will not be so difficult to ID this radio vehicle.

Best regards

Bert
