here a pic of a French COE truck, maybe Renault. Can someone tell me the name of the producer and the type of this truck? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bert,
I see why you are puzzled. No doubt it is Renault, something from AG* family of COEs, probably AGM, but certain cab areas were "doctored". It is impossible to say who did it, the ex-French owner or Kriegsmarine fitters. The cab is Renault for sure, those typical suicide doors are well visible, so it seems the upgrades are only in the windshield panes area and on the roof.
HTH

H ilfil,

I am having real trouble finding pictures of Renault AGM trucks. Please can you post scans of the normal cab setup? Or maybe a website for pre-war Renault trucks where they have pictures of the AGM type? I have tried Vauvillier and yahoo and Google, but no success so far. I can see what you mean about the windscreen, most of the AG series trucks I have seen have screens which are also split horizontally. The modifications made by various coach builders do make identification very difficult at times.

Thanks,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry,
All I have on this obscure and apparently camera-shy vehicle is a single picture of bad quality scanned from some magazine (from memory).

Image

As you can see, it has the familiar look of AG* COEs and only the short wheelbase is a hint it is AGM 3,5-tonner. Here it is in German use.
Cheers!
N.B. I have a feeling most of those AGMs were vans.

Just found:

No recognition needed, of course. But I'm curious about the number plate of this pristine custom-cabbed 1940 Ford tipper. Looks like it has Stab "Speer" markings on the side board.
TIA.
Cheers!

Hi Sturm,
There are a couple here from 1932-33 that look similar but no "bingo".http://www.renaultoloog.nl/trucks-english.htm

Hi Max, hi Sturm 78,

thank You for the site with the Renault trucks. For me it is a Renault from the year 1933, possible types with this cab: OSB, PRB and SXB. Looking for the payload the most sure ID is the type PRB (OSB = 1,3t, PRB = 2t, SXB = 2,5t).
Here a pic of the type OSB from the year 1933 with only two tires on the rear axle.

Best regards

Bert

The two Fords are I think of Dutch origin. Outfitted with radio equipment. The Belgians had a very similar pattern radio vehicle. I think Dutch because of the style/shape of windshield bodywork.
