Is this a Panzer I Ausf.A Funk with an additional antenna?

Hi Darek
yes it is. But I think the structure is behind the tank and not on it.
The frame antenna makes it a Funkwagen. You can find additional pictures
under the topic "Rarities" in "Panzer & other vehicles -photo threads".

Armin

Thank you for your answer, I just mean the additional structure marked with a red rectangle. Is this the second additional antenna? Is this some kind of mast behind the tank?

I'm pretty sure that it is some kind of mast behind the Panzer.

Hi Alif,
A Renault Juvaquatre AEB4. The door marking could be the 168th Infantry Division.
Cheers,
Kerry.

It is a 1,5 tonner. Would be nice to know it's full history. Most of the parts of a 1,5 tonner are identical over the whole of the production history, so in theory it could be produced after the war. The layout of the cabine could be either custom for auxilary use of firefihter. Very interresting vehicle!
Hi Piet,
Thanks very much for your information. The ad states it was first registered in 1943 but "was implemented on a longer chassis in the 1960s" and "was once a tow truck." but now is a tipper. In your opinion just how much of the original Opel lorry is left? For instance, do you think that it was originally an extended cab? It looks quite similar to the semi tractor that Bert posted/
The 1,5 tonner Blitz was build upto 1955, the 3 tonner upto 1952 and both where favorite of firefigters and auxillary forces because their petrol engines could instantly deliver speed. (As upposed to early diesel engines) My best guess is that a huge part of this truck once served in the firefighting forces. Usually this kind of construction was after the war. It's amazing what was done with truck parts and truck platforms in the post war years. But you cannot be certain what is what. Many of these ruged trucks ended their life as tow truck. The crane unit was often re-used and mixing the parts of 3 broken vehicles into one working truck might bring a 1955 chassis under a 1941 body. It's all speculation until you restore a vehicle or take a lot of things apart.
Met vriendelijke groeten, With kind regards, Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Amicalement,

Piet van Hees

Hi Sturm,
That is the Morris-Commercial CS 11/30. This should not to be confused with the CS 11/30F, which was a forward-control version, on which a heavy ambulance was built. Both types found use with German forces.
Cheers,
Kerry.
