Jerry-If you look at page 315 in Fred W. Crimson's book U.S. Military wheeled vehicles, you'll find a few photos. The book is from Crestline Publishing, with ISBN number 0-912612-21-5

Thanks for posting as I would never have known about them until I looked it up!

Jerry-Looking thru Crimson's book, I'd say you've hit the description exactly. According to the book, only three of these low silhouette trucks were ever built. I'm sure they didn't tool up to make a prototype, so they probably used available parts when they made it. The book states the DCKW had a 151 inch wheel baseoverall length of 243 inches including the winch. I believe the normal CCKW's were 145 or 164 inch wheel base, so your project will fall in between.

Sounds like a terrific project!
