Thanks ilfil, that is surely the same photo. Strangely though, the normal layout of the Kfz61 on a Krupp chassis does not have an open cab, the wooden body extends over the driver's compartment. Also the wheel arches are rounded, not the angular ones shown here. I guess it must be a local modification based on the artillery tractor or some such model?
Regards,
Kerry.

Hi Victor, hi Markus,

could it be the bus type OD 5,5 N 42? I have only a bad pic of such a bus, but it seems that it could fit (source of the pic: www.omnibusarchiv.de).

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,

thank You ver myucg for this onformation. Now we can ID the type almost certainly. According to the list in "Deutsche Omnibusse seit 1895" by Wolfgang Gebhardt it must be the engine M 422 with 125 PS, fitted in the types OD 5,5 N 42, OD 5,5 N 142 and OD 5,5 N 242.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Kerry, ilfil, and Prosper
Very interesting funkwagen indeed. I've never seen a Kfz. 61 with a "bedframe" before, but I guess there are lots of things I haven't seen. :wink:
Cheers,
Max

Interesting busses. Both have civilian
license plates. AI is a Berlin prefix and
the other looks like IIIE for
Neckarkreis, Württemberg.
The Berlin bus also has a WH painted
on the fender.

Here I have pictures of a vehicle that we could not indentify .
It looks like a vehicle of a propaganda unit, some were on the western front
Is this from origine a French vehicle ?

Hi Bert,
This propaganda vehicle is German affair, the coachbuilder is Gaubschat and the chassis is MAN (from memory, I'm away from my info now).
HTH
