The MAN type Z 2 replaced the MAN type Z 1 in 1937. It had the new radiator grille. The Z 2 had a payload of 3 to 3.3 tons and was propelled by a 80 HP diesel engine.
The MAN type Z 2 was only a bit smaller than the very similar MAN type L 1. The opening for the starter crank was located in a hump on the bumber like on the Z 1. It was located in the radiator grille in the case of the L 1.
The upper and the middle MAN type Z 2 had the initial driver’s cab with overhanging roof. The lower vehicle had the newer driver’s cab without overhanging roof, which was used beginning in 1938.
