Hi ilfil,

thanks again for Your excellent reply mentioning all important aspects. I take up Your suggestion to return to the start of our discussion.
You gave the decisive clue to me that this beauty is a RHD vehicle. Now I assume that it could be an Austrian Fross-Büssing, maybe the type FBO 1. So it could be a license product of Büssing-NAG. Here a pic of this bus (source: https://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/2014- ... p-fbo1/25/). The Austrians had the RHD till 1938. What do You think?

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm,
I believe the tube on the front wing contains surveying instruments, so I would say that this is a Light Survey Car, Kfz. 3. Very nice photo.

Hi Bert,
I think now you nailed it. Indeed, there still are some differences (for example the bonnet sides vent louvers shape in front, our suspect is with 4 side windows only, etc.) but I guess there were body variants. However, the RHD definitely restricts the choice to the Austrians alone, you're right.
Cheers!

Hi ilfil,,

thanks to You! I think like You, that there were body variants. For example here the both variants of Büssing-NAG type 350 - O made by Gaubschat 1936 and 1937. B.t.w. Gaubschat made only one specimen in 1936 and two in 1937. So these vehicles are extremely rare. Maybe the same with the license by Fross-Büssing.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Jose
Agram is the Austrian/German name for Zagreb Croatia. The vehicle was most likely built by a Luftwaffe unit for airfield defence. I don't recognize the running gear but maybe a Caterpillar or similiar small crawler or bulldozer. Similiar vehicles were constructed by the Luftwaffe using captured FT17, UE carrier and Bren carriers - all for airfield defence. This resulted in some unusual vehicles

Apparently the bus is Krupp/Junkers on 5-ton 5L/LD chassis.
