Kerry:

Thank you very much for the Krupp ID.
In all the years I have been doing research, I was never aware of those early variants. In fact, even now, the ID photo is better than any I found today.
Truly a rare vehicle and you did a great job in identifying it..

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the kind words.

You are spot on, there are very few views available of this model. Here is one of von Manstein on a visit with Hitler, cropped from a larger photo, but just about viewable!

Kerry.

Hi Kerry, hi Bill,

Bill, I share the same opinion. Maybe it´s interestuing for You: another pic of this early version out of the book "Kraftfahrzeuge und Panzer der Reichswehr, Wehrmacht und Bundeswehr" by Werner Oswald.

Best regards

Bert

Thank you all. :) I never thought of Studebaker using a winged logo.

Hi Uncle:
There is not much in the photo to help identification, but looking at the grille, it might be a civilian Renault AGC.

Hi Bill, hi uncle,

it´s really difficult to say what exact type it is. I think it is one of the Büssing-NAG "Burglöwe"-types, maybe the 2-tonner or 2 1/2-tonner. Here a drawing of the "20 Burglöwe" out of the book "Autotypenbuch. Typentafeln der Deutschen Kraftfahrzeugindustrie 1936".

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert/Uncle:

Bert, I think you have the right answer. The only other identification "clue" was the steering rod that looked like it might be outside the engine compartment. I thought of a Büssing also as they had that feature but could not find a good left side view photo so I went with the Renault.

Good Job!!
Edit: Found a photo.

Bill and Bert, thanks again.
Perhaps somebody can id these two "furniture vans"? They both appear to be right-hand drive.
Thank you,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry:

The rear one may be another 1936 Studebaker, if so, probably LHD.
