L- 4500 S EINHEITSKABINE (GERMAN TRUCK)

Since middle of WWII Germany had a shortage of metal, therefore a

series of simplifi cations were introduced since 1943 in the manufacturing

process of vehicles. These resulted in a design change of the 4,5t heavy

truck: front fenders made from simple metal sheets, cabin was made

from plywood on wooden frame, front bumper and rear fenders were deleted.

This simple variant (called Einheitskabine) was manufactured until

the end of war. These trucks were in service even several years after the

end of war for many civilian purposes.
