Hi Bert,

If post-war I assume very early: It has 1938-45 Wien plates and according to https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historisc ... se_1947.29 in August 1945 Wien was among the Soviet-occupied Austrian territories that changed license plates to white on black.

I think this camouflaged car (WH-1359284) is a 1936 Dodge (or Plymouth?).

Hi Luftflotte2,
Judging by the grille detail I would say a '38 Plymouth 4 dr Touring Sedan. The spare wheel mounting position looks a little strange in any case, possibly relocated from the boot to accomodate part of the gas apparatus.

This looks like a Dodge/Fargo WF-32, but the cab appears to be a little different from the standard and has a single pane windscreen.

Can't tell you much about these models. Maybe the car is an Opel Admiral.

Hi Luftflotte 2,

the truck is a Mercedes-Benz type L 4500 S. Here a pic out of the book "Mercedes-Benz Lastwagen und Omnibusse 1896 - 19886" by Werner Oswald.

Regards

Bert

Typical 1938 or 39 Ford COE, most probably of Netherlands origin.

This is a Skoda 254. I've seen serveral photos of this model of Skoda in SS service.

Here is a 1939 Chevrolet from an expired ebay.de auction.
