Tim,
'Krad' certainly suggests a motorcycle, it being, I believe, an abbreviated form of the German word for motorcycle which is 'Kraftrad'.
As for identifying the individual vehicle I'm unable to help. I went to the website autogallery.org.ru which contains a long list, in order, of the number plates of German vehicles with accompanying photographs; the number plate in question is not listed.
If I can find anything relevant I'll let you know.
Regards, Rob.

Hi Sturm 78,

if I could read the details (weight 3.800 kg, payload 3.000 kg) on the door, than it could be a Büssing-NAG type 300. Here a version built for the Wehrmacht.

Best regards

Bert

Thanks Bert. It is not possible see your image. I have searched for more images of the BN Type 300 but without little success...

Hi Sturm,
I think your photo is a Büssing-NAG Typ 200, as the Typ 350 has a longer hood. I have not seen the Typ 300 designation. I think Bert was wrong.
Here is a photo for comparison:

Hi Andriy,
Maybe Bert is correct.
I thought the 3 ton Burglöwe was later designated Type 300? The only pics I have of the type are of the conversions made in 1934 for transporting Auto-Union's racing cars.

Hi Francy,
These coachbuilt Italians can be hard to pin down but this one looks like a FIAT 2800 with styling somewhat similar to this one by Carrozzeria Viotti:
Grazie mille MAX!!!!

Hi Max,
Yes indeed you are right - the Type 300 existed, I found an image of it. And it was originally called that. In appearance, the Type 300 was almost indistinguishable from the Type 250, with the exception of a longer wheelbase. But in the photo there is Sturm78, a truck with a shorter wheelbase. So this is Type 200 or Type 250.
Here is a picture of the Type 300:

Hi Andriy,
Yes, I agree with you, the wheelbase does appear shorter on Sturm's pic. Holger also lists a Typ 260 and Typ 275 but there are no pictures. http://www.kfzderwehrmacht.de/Homepage_ ... glowe.html
But there remains the matter of the door markings.
Thanks for the pic of the 300D.
Cheers,
Max

Hi all,

Could be this truck a Büssing-NAG Burglöwe ?

Hi Sturm 78,

a very interesting pic. Thanks for posting. You are right, it is a "Burglöwe". It is the type 30. Such trucks were used by the "Technische Nothilfe". This truck was obviously used by the Police forces.

Here a pic of such a truck (source: "Das Lastwagen-Album Büssing" by Bernd Regenberg).

Best regards

Bert

It is the type 30.
As far as I know, the Typ 30 designation was carried by trucks from 1932, from 1934 - Typ 300D, and from 1935 - Typ 300 Burglöwe. It is also written in Holger and this is confirmed by the radiator grill in the photo. Only with such a radiator grill, Büssing-NAG trucks of this class were named Burglöwe.

Andriy

Hi Bert,
I never heard of the Technische Nothilfe organization, thanks for bringing it to my attention. Do you have any other photos of their vehicles?
Cheers,
Max
