To the Krupp You posted 06 October: I think it is no Diesel, because there is no emblem of Junkers on the bonnet. I assume, that it is the type L 4 M 262, because there are ten bolts on the rims. The L 3,5 had only eight.
Are you sure, Bert ? :? It seems that Krupp L4 trucks used Simplex rims. See

Hi Sturm,
I don't know about Bert but I'm sure it is L4.
Keep in mind the wheels often aren't sure ID, for with most manufacturers they are optional and upon request of the customer. Just one example:

BTW, the upper truck wheels are known as "split rims type" or with their trade name "Trilex" (because the rim is split to 3 sections). If my memory still serves me, simplex is something related with the geometry which I don't like much. :roll:
Cheers!

Quite,

E.g. the 1948 Handbuch der Kraftfahrzeug-Typen, Band 2 by Carl Otto Windecker lists LD 4 M 232 wheels as "Trilex-Stahlgußspeichenräder" but its M 232 pic shows disc wheels.

Hi ilfil, hi Markus,

thank You very much for the support. Here the picture of the Krupp LD 4 M 232 of the Autotypenbuch: Typentafeln der Deutschen Kraftfahrzeugindustrie of the year 1937 (here with the elder cab).

Best regards

Bert

Excellent ID, valpatrak!
I'm now trying to determine the coachbuilder. It strongly resembles this 1948 1500 cabriolet by Viotti of Torino.

Hello valpatrak,
Thank you for that link. Good pics. Some there also seem to suggest that Viotti may be the coachbuilder of the mystery FIAT but nothing conclusive either.
Cheers,
Max
