Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for posting this very interesting and very rare (I think) of one of the prototypes of the 1 ton half-track tractors.
You put an interesting question. I think it is the prototype II 3. On Holger´s site (http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de) I found the following text to the development of this tractor:
"The first prototype D II 1 (Demag Liliput model 1) had a very short running gear with only three road wheels. One year later, the type D II 2 followed. It had one additional pair of road wheels. Allegedly, 38 exemplars of the third prototype D II 3 were made in 1936. It had the final arrangement of the running gear with five road wheels per side. The radiator mask was similar to the later series vehicles." On Your pic there are five road wheels.

Here a pic from the prototype D II 1 and a pic from the prototype D II 2 for comparing.

Best regards

Bert

unique picture of a Dutch Wilton-Feijenoord

Currently on ebay a unique picture of a Dutch Wilton-Fijenoord armored car in hands of German troops, perhaps the one that ended in the square of the Reichskanzlei in Berlin in 1945. In front of it is an old Ehrhardt armoured car which was in the Korps Rijdende Artillerie barracks in Oegstgeest in 1940

Nice find. Looks like a slightly older model. The Axis countries with right-hand-drive were Austria (until the Anschluss in 1938), and Hungary (until mid-1941). Both of these had motor vehicle production. So, possibly a licensed production or export model?

[To be complete, until its occupation in 1939, Czechoslovakia. Don't think they imported German vehicles, though, and they did have their own truck manufacturers. And, further with right-hand-drive in Europe: Britain and Sweden. ]

Hi Sturm,
This is a very interesting pic.
Based on what little I can see of the vertical radiator grille bar I think this Ford is likely based on a German manufactured '39-'42.
Cheers,
Max

It can't really be an original photograph either as I used the same photograph to make a model of this truck three years ago.

You mean eBay peddles copies as originals? 8O Alan, next you'll be telling us there is no Santa Claus :lol: !
Seriously, maybe you should post your model in the modelling section, It's an interesting truck.
Cheers,
Max

Ha Max............ I too got this one earlier, January to be exact from ebay.de.

After a lot of looking at my files and Googling, I can only come to the conclusion that it may be an ex-Australian or New Zealand example probably captured in the Western Desert. Only big problem with that is the grille guard which I do not think they had.

My reasoning is based on the fact that the doors are intact as on the US versions and all the Belgian/Dutch/Hungarian etc. M-H Fords I have photos of show them without doors.

Take a look at the photos below and give me your opinions please.

Bill,
It does have a very striking resemblance, even the running board matches. My main concern is the width of the rear end. Perhaps a second wheel added to widen the track?

A very good point, Kerry:

Somewhere in my saved documentation about M-H conversions, I remember reading that dual rear wheels/tyres were an option on this particular model. I'll try to find it.

Just to keep it going, here is a photo of a Canadian Royal Air Force vehicle of this type which appears to have dual rear wheels/tyres.

Note, though, it is left hand drive and I believe they never left Canada, being superseded by the CMP type vehicles.
