Beginning late in 1942, the Büssing-NAG type 4500 A replaced the Büssing-NAG type 500 A. The type 4500 A was more adjusted to the Büssing-NAG type 4500 S. Therefore, the engine bonnet was arranged much less ascending towards the driver’s cab and the side plated of the engine bonnet were undivided and had 7 louvers. This Büssing-NAG type 4500 A of the first series belonged to s. Panzer Abteilung 501 and was photographed in North Africa.

The design of the wheel hubs of the rear axle of the type 4500 was changed compared to the type 500. Now they had a pointed end. In the course of time, several simplifications were introduced into serial production. This Büssing-NAG type 4500 A still had 7 louvers but had the newer, simplified radiator grille.

To save raw material and for further simplification of production, the rear fenders were dropped and the front fenders were widely simplified. Only four, later two louvers were stamped into the side plates of the engine bonnet. The bumper was made narrower, which can be seen on the shown photo.

Beginning in 1944, smaller headlights were attached. Finally, the Holzfahrerhaus – wooden driver’s cab – and a shorter exhaust pipe, which was placed in front of the left front fender, were used. This Büssing-NAG type 4500 A, which featured several of these simplifications, was photographed during the run from Altenmarkt to Bad Aibling on 29th May 1945.
