Hi Rob,
Wow, that was fast! I was expecting to fool someone since it looks so much like the Tatra 72 but you saw right through that. Well done and please carry on.
Cheers,
Max

Thank you, Max.
Here's the next entry in the quiz.
It's a post-war picture, the number plates identifying the location as the Rhineland, British zone of occupation (the letters B and R).
I know the manufacturer of the convertible so that will be adequate.

I'm sure that someone will confirm what I believe to be the model type.
Regards, Rob.

To help, it's a German manufacturer and quite commonly found.

Hi Rob,
This is a head scratcher. I've just been through Oswald's Deutsche Autos for the second time and the closest I can find with that distinctive door moulding is this BMW 3/20 PS:

I'm not at all happy with this answer but it's the only one I've got!

Hi Rob, hi Max,

could it be a Hanomag 4/23 PS type 11 cabriolet?

Best regards

Bert

Hello Bert,
Yes, you're right with your identification of the vehicle as a Hanomag and it has to be a 4-23 PS cabriolet. Enclosed is a picture of a restored example.
Max was very close, the door moulding on the door is very similar to that on the BMW 3/20 and I find that the two types have much in common.
A confession - I thought that I had a photograph of the 4-23 cabrio in military service but I now find that it's of a later model, perhaps a Rekord. I must apologise for that; my entry rather defeated the purpose of the quiz. I must learn to curb my enthusiasm in the future and ensure that I am able to

provide evidence of the vehicle in use by by the Axis forces.
Over to you, Bert.
Regards to all.
Rob.

Hi Rob,

thank You! But there is no need for an apology. Hanomag produced a three-seater Kübelwagen of the model 4/23 PS. Unfortunately I don´t have a pic of this vehicle.
Here is the new question: who can ID this truck?

Best regards and much luck

Bert

Hi Max,

thank You very much for this pic. This must be the Hanomag type 4/23. For comparing a pic with the type 4/20 (source: "Personenkraftwagen der Wehrmacht" by Reinhard Frank). In the same book is a pic of the type 4/23 with the divided windscreen, but not exactly identified (type 4/20 or rather 4/23). With Your help we can now identify the two models of Hanomag cars.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
To me it looks like a MAN between 3 and 6 tons. Maybe a Type D1?

Hi Max,

You are on the right way, but it´s not the type D 1.

Best regards

Bert
