  1. On my computer all the pictures are visible. Was always interesting to read your threads. Regards Motorfahrer from Austria
  2. It is an universal part that fits a civilian car in military service as well. German forces were short on military vehicles and took everything they could lay their hands on. Cheers
  3. Hi this is no windshield but a windshield heater that was on the inside of the shield and with all the rubber it created an airpocket that was heated with the wires to get warm to the windshield. You could control the heat by the knob. Tag says that the apparatus is regulated for 6 Volts and gives instructions how to fix it to the inside.
  4. A Steyr 640 Kommandowagen for the German Wehrmacht built in former Austria
  5. Porsche had experience on electric drive. The Austrian Hungarian Army had the M16 Generatorzugwagen C Zug where a tractor with an electric generator provided power to itself and the trailers to move great loads up small mountain roads or could travel on rails. He came from a electric company first to Lohner and then to Austro Daimler. The Mercedes Mixte was his brainchild too. Motorfahrer

  7. Even the Austrian Army got some leftover High Speed Tractors when the Allied Forces left the country in 1955. See this facebook Video of the Traditionsverband Heereskraftfahrwesen. Here more info provided in english http://www.hkfw.at/en/our-vehicles/80-allis-chalmers-m4-high-speed-tractor-18t-2-en Motorfahrer
  8. Thanks for help to post the link. I see now that when you click on the pages in the tread they become smaller instead of bigger so that one cannot read them. Fascinating stuff to read and see in the "Allgemeine Automobil Zeitung" from 1900 till 1938 when Austria was closed down. The "Austrian Touring Zeitung" ran from 1898 till 1938 is the magazine of the Austrian Touring Club which started with bicycles and then to motorcycles and cars. http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno-plus?aid=oet A lot of information there too, but only in german.

  9. Here are some pages from an Austrian motor magazine from 1915 called Allgemeine Automobil Zeitung. The text is german but the pictures are international. Starts with an english newspaper page on american ambulances but lots of pictures. Is downloaded from the Austrian National Bibliothek were this motor magazine is for online reading. motorfahrer
  10. Hello, maybe of interest but on ebay in Austria pictures of an Scammel Pioneer after the war in Austria are sold. http://www.ebay.de/itm/1-191-4Fotos-USA-div-LKW-Vorkrieg-2-/380381494426?pt=Kataloge_Prospekte&hash=item589080fc9a#ht_500wt_1156. It is not on the topic but as there are pictures of CP Fords too i will say that as far as i know Austria got some CP Fords after the war to overcome shortages of transportation of food. http://www.ebay.de/itm/1-192-4Fotos-USA-div-LKW-Vorkrieg-3-/380381494448?pt=Kataloge_Prospekte&hash=item589080fcb0#ht_500wt_1156 Motorfahrer
