There were a small number of sub-4 ton Dennises built prewar with the Perkins 'Wolf' diesel engine, I'm not sure whether this was offered in trade literature or just operator spec. In the same way, the 4LK was a possibility as a few were built as such, but not sure it was ever listed.

Hi, David,

WNR = Werk Nummer, probably pore obvious to you than us Brits. It's probaably an overhaul number from a German or Austrian workshop. A lot of allied vehicles were overhauld, repaired or rebuilt as part of the war reparations, and posssibly on civilian contract after. 

I would think a very rare survival to see it still in place.

Best Regards,

Adrian

the WNR number can be found on vehicles that went through workshops after 1949 and on until late  1950s champs pigs and others these numbers were best described as work sheet references that linked to a job sheet

My 1953 Austin K9 originally built as a GS Cargo, but converted with a unfitted house / Radio body,  and held in reserve stocks until disposal has a similar WR number.

I purchased this vehicle from a Ruddington auction in 1980, and it still has some white stenciled lettering on the passenger windscreen, which was a common practice at the time.
