Apparently 23 total of that body style. A lot of interesting reading on Tom Patterson's site about Silver Streaks - including the brochure for this model.

Looks to be European...at least the cab and motor...the Diesel motor has what appears to be similar linkage to the older OM615 motor...but the valve cover is wrong...

It may be a factory model, but it definitely looks home made. But, it does look nice inside. Too bad it seems to have so many mechanical problems.

It's so ugly it looks like the hindquarter of bad luck.
I guess I could use it to pull my Squarestream to WBCCI rallies.That would be a good show stopper.

That would definitely be a sight Jimmini, heck with a little added cruise control and a straight road.... you could just jump in the back and shake up one of those famous Bloody Marys. I think I would pay to see that.

I wonder if that is the same Hanomag company that built the German 251 halftrack in WW II ?
