Full Militärmuseum
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I would say, Dodge WC3, because it has no winch behind the front bumper.

I was there last Sunday together with Christoph Zimmerli of www.wheelsandtracks.com. We saw the recently restored M44, they did a pretty good job on it. Centurion ARV back from Sweden.
We managed to visit the workshop where we spotted for the first time a BMP-1 and BTR-60, plus a CMP truck under restoration, there were very cool artillery things I will report on the artillery forum.

Probably a Ford Model A, all the cues are there. Also, they made about two dozen variants over five years or so in several countries. Best bet is to post at a classic Ford forum.

I'm guessing sedan or business coupe.

Post subject: Ford numberplate

Please also note the special numberplate "12153 A". This is a special army numberplate they put on requisition cars and trucks. During WW2 the Swiss Army didn't have enought cars, trucks etc. So the army "hired" civilian vehicles and put an army numberplate on (A for cars, tractors etc, B for motorbikes).

This is a good website about all the different army numberplates (sorry, German only).

Greetings
Chris
