Kerry,
The dished-in radiator grille of the vehicle in question suggests a DKW Schwebeklasse.
Regards, Rob.

Hi Rob, I thought that the damage might confuse, but you have nailed it.
Well done, you have control,
Kerry.

Kerry,
Thank you very much.
I found a photograph of a Schwebeklasse Kübelwagen which I include along with my entry in the competition.

Kerry,
The photograph of the Schwebeklasse Kübelwagen came from the website 'vfv-automobil-forum.de'; I don't know of any other pictures of that particular vehicle.
I assume that it shared characteristics with the DKW Sonderklasse 1001 Kübelwagen which had three seats rather than the four of the Schwebeklasse. Photographs of restored examples of the 1001 are readily available on the internet.
Rob.

To all,
I believe that an explanation and an apology are called for regarding my above entry in the competition.
Some years ago I collected many photographs of Tempo vehicles in order to help me as I started some scale drawings of a Tempo 3-wheeled lorry.
One of these photographs I labelled as 'Tempo, Hungarian troops, Voronezh'. This is the photograph above.
I have just looked more closely at the image and noticed that the 'wraparound' rear mudguard is not typical of the range of Tempo vehicles.
I returned to the source of the image and found that the word 'Tempo' does not apply to the vehicle at all. I enclose a screenshot of the original image and the caption which I so stupidly misread.
I therefore withdraw my entry from the competition with my unreserved apologies to all.
If anyone is able to identify the vehicle in the photograph I would be grateful as it would enable me to correct my error.
Rob.

Max,
Sorry but I can't find anything that would be suitable for the quiz at present so I'd be more than happy if you'd like to take over.
I hope that this is ok.
Rob.

OK, Thanks Rob,
My last one only lasted 10 minutes but I'll see what I can do. BTW I'm still looking for that strange looking car you just posted. Very mysterious.
Cheers,
Max

Thank you, Max.
This is a photograph of a Tempo A/E 600, a version of which I thought was featured in my original photo.
The more I compare the two vehicles, the more convinced I become that they are not related; the absence of any details of the bonnet is frustrating.
I look forward to finding out the make and model of the vehicle.
Regards, Rob.

Where is everyone? The Ron Klages Vehicles Section hasn't had a post in three days. Summer holidays, Covid, or is AHF dying?
Back on topic maybe a side view of the quiz vehicle will help get get things going again.
