How do you compare and classify a range of vehicles that some are from large serie factory series, and others are from small coach builders, building a unique bus? I simply grouped them on externally visible differences. This has its flaws, but it works. The thoughts behind them if you are interested:
- The 2 distinct Wehrmacht versions where the ones most frequently seen on photo when I started.
- The panoramic windows in the roof sides stand out, and are often seen in combination with a custom bonnet, with vertical louvers. Possibly all coming from one factory.
- The earlier blitzes and the 1.5 ton Blitz are easily put apart.
- 1.5 and 1 tonners stand out by size and by wheels.
- Many special customized vehicles with often extreme air streamed coachwork stand out even more.
- After that you get a lot of pictures of clearly different busses, but all design rationally based on the square floor and the limitation of the outer dimensions. I came up with counting the windows to differentiate between them. It's mostly a technical aproch to get order in the pictures and files. And hopefully more design and coachbuilder info wil surface.
