Hi dcpacificw2k,

yes, I think it is a Zündapp K 800 with a Steib sidecar model nr. 31. Here a pic of this motorcycle (source: Auto + Technikmuseum Sinsheim).

Regards

Bert

Hello Max,
It is an Albion, possibly a Model 125 CL or an impressed civilian type. It is very difficult to be precise I am afraid, but perhaps someone else has the absolute answer.
All the best,
Kerry.

Found this one on a blog page: http://h2oneindanke.blogspot.com/2014/06/?m=0

It looks like some kind of Kubelwagen modification. I thought holzgas at first, but the front end is too boxy. Perhaps a post-war ad-hoc conversion? What do you all think?

Hello Sturm.
Judging by the trunk in the back, it's a Laffly S15R.

Hi armchairgeneral,

You are right, the vehicle on Your pic is a Volkswagen Kübelwagen modification and it´s a post-war conversion (the license plate is post-war). I think it is a vehicle with a special gas engine. Here two pics: another Volkswagen Kübelwagen modification (source: "Volkswagen Militärfahrzeuge 1938 - 1945" by Hans-Georg Mayer-Stein) and a pic of a MAN bus with a special gas engine (1943) (source: https://omnibus.news/75-jahre-gasantrieb).
I hope I could help You a little bit.

Regards

Bert

Thanks SIS 5!

Probably not the best source, but could it be related to the Type 309 mentioned in the linked provided? So far, all the types listed have checked out, though its getting harder to find actual photos of them the further down the list I go.

https://www.nevingtonwarmuseum.com/germ ... wagen.html

In the meantime, I got another Kubelwagen if you're interested in taking a look. If I am to believe the list I provided, its the Type 164, though the description on the site is a bit ambigious.

Hi armchairgeneral,

sorry, the Volkswagen on Your pic cannot be the type 164. This type was not built. There were only plans of it. Here a copy. Source: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewt ... ?p=7897751.
The Volkswagen on Your pic could be the type 276 (tractor vehicle) with a swank for towing a load, gun or trailer. This type had bigger tyres. Here there were mounted four wheels on the rear axle for improving the traction when towing off-road or here in the snow.

Regards

Bert
