The MAN type 3.5 Tonner was made in many variations from 1920 to 1933. Nearly 1,200 exemplars were manufactured. In 1933, it was replaced by the more modern MAN type Z 1. The Reichswehr procured some vehicles of this type, too.
This MAN type 3.5 Tonner had already a Wehrmacht number plate. It is a late serial model which is identifiable by the pneumatic tyres.
