Yes, the Henschel version with its Sd. Ah. 24 in tow. Nice pic, Jose.
Cheers,

Hi Jose,

thank You very much for posting the last two pics. They are very interesting for me. B.n.w., the Opel Blitz is an ambulance, the same with the two Phänomen Granit 1500.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Max,

an interesting question. I think it cannot be the Kfz. 305/76, because these are vehicles of the Luftwaffe (from Kfz. 300 on) and not the all wheel driven variant: mittlerer Lastkraftwagen (o) mit geschlossenem Aufbau. Here a pic of the Kfz. 305/76.

Best regards

Bert

Thanks, Bert. Good points. It looks like the standard LC Koffer though. And thanks for that nice photo.
Cheers,
Max

Thanks for this nice Kaelble picture.

Grüß Dich Bert,

also thanks to You for posting this pic of a Kaelble tractor. I think like You, that it is the type Z 4 GR. Here a pic of such a vehicle of the "Deutsche Reichsbahn". Source of the pic: "Kaelble Lastkraftwagen und Zugmaschinen" by Joachim Wahl and Alexander Luig.

Not the best quality, but rare?
If i am right-Wanderer W22 or W50? Grille insert is missing, and the main differences(wheels:holes x solid, front fenders/mudguards/wings:no skirts x skirted)
cant be seen from this angle?

Hi Jose,
To me the only visible clue seems to be the bonnet louvers. Compared to the few reference pics available, primarily from Holger, the W 22 (left) has plain louvers while the W 50 (right) has kind of a box frame.
Left=W22 Right=W50.jpg
While not conclusive, it seems to my eyes that the louvers in your rather fuzzy pic are arguably closer to the W 22, so you may indeed have a rare W 22 with a W 50 style bumper, as also shown on Holger's site.
