Hello all,
can please somebody identify this vehicle? Was filmed in Rome or Milan right after German troops surrendered to Allied forces.

Hi all,

I need help with this Mercedes-Benz Wehrmacht truck. According to Ebay photo caption L5000 but I think this is wrong.
L3000 ?? :?

Hi Sturm,
I agree with you. Overall size, headlamp position and wheels indicate L 2750/L 3000 rather than L 5000. Those ebay captions are more often wrong than right.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Jose
That is a Daimler-Marienfelde. 3 ton, 4 cylinder with chain drive. Used extensively by German Army and many survived to serve in the Reichswehr.

Hi Sturm 78, hi Max,

You are right. It cannot be the type L 5000. I would say it could be the type Lo 2750. Here a pic of such a truck. It is a pity that the quality of this pic is not better, because there are two interesting details about the weight on the door:
weight of the vehicle: more than 4000 kg
payload: more than 2500 kg

Best regards

Bert

Hello Sirs,
Please could you help on getting some information about these fuel trucks.
They look are based in a Ford chassis, but with a two axles in rear wheels. I tought that the chassis were could originally be made in the dutch Ford Factory, could be with sussex type wheelbases, or made with imported chassis from England and with a local (german? belgiun? french?) cab an tanker body.

While the tanker bodies are different, the windshield and cab are the same. the engine radiator cover is different, one it looks to have a 1937 Ford BB V8 truck type (despite being covered), and the other the normal Ford V3000 engine and radiator cover, a hint to one-off purpose built vehicles...

Hello all, great thread this one.
A question about the military cabs, how many different varieties were there, were they all made to the same spec, or did they vary according to the size of truck they went on? Thanks, john
