I look forward to watching this project, I love the subject matter! With your skills, it will be awesome John!
I remember seeing an article years ago about this truck. Seems to me it was used by Mercedes as a fast way to transport race cars around Europe in the event of a breakdown at a race. There weren't any big trucks with spare cars on them then. The article inspired me to get in waaaaay over my head trying to create a similar vehicle from an American manufacturer. I cut about 3/4 inch out of the front fenders of a '57 Chevy wagon to shorten the nose. Didn't take me long to realize I did not have the skills needed and set it aside.
I will enjoy this one for sure!
