Yes your right the second photo is the same car as in the first photo, I guess it must have been damaged in an accident/hit in the back so they modified the boot/trunk accordingly .

 

I have new informations from French specialist ; Patrick Vaudreville.

 

He give me these informations the car is :

 

Mercedes 170V Typ (W136) Polizeï Kubelsitzwagen, in fact this Mercedes was modified by german police.

Hello Tony

 

Beautiful photo of your Kfz2, yes Stoewer had four wheel steer

 

I'm trying to give you a lillte Stoewer's historic !

 

From 1934, Standardisation Wehrmacht vehicles (Heer, Luftwaffe and kriegsmarine) and soon SS , is setting up.

 

Also Civilian vehicles adapted for military use progressively are abandoned and specifics vehicles arrived whith particularity technical become very important.

 

Classification is set up with letters : Kfz (kraftfahrzeug : motor vehicle) then number for specific purpose.

 

This classification is only for motor manufacturer but not car manufacturer

 

There were three manufacturer :

 

Stoewer since 1936 to 1943

 

BMW 1937 to 1940

 

Hanomag 1937 to 1940

 

 

Some little difference between manufacturers outside, could not know manufacturers without open bonnet.

 

 

These véhicles had four wheel steer or normal

 

There was five Stoewer versions :

 

Kfz 1= four passenger vehicle

 

Kfz2 = Radio vehicle

 

kfz2/40 = Vehicle "service, repair"

 

Kfz3 : guard vehicle

 

Kfz 4 vehicle with little "DCA"

 

 

 

PS : sorry for my poor english and many thanks to HARRAP'S.... :) :);)

Thanks Fredric, the one pictured is owned by Damien Horn, he owns the Jersey Military musuem. It was in the Island and following the end of the war was sold at auction locally. It then became a family car!
