we would like to know if there are pieces, especially steering wheel, speedometer and other watches on the control box. We like to have a picture of this last, to know what they were and where.
for your information the number of engine and chassis 4830 , 3891. the truck is in the Canary Military Museum (TENERIFE, CANARY ISLANDS) SPAIN. I hope news, thanks
The Henschel engine number 4830 was a machine sent to the Legion Condor in Spain. Its Legion Condor registration number during the war was LC-54256 and was transferred in 1939 to the Spanish Air Force in Leon (the Park of the LC). The SAF got then 65 Henschel 33D1 and 9 Henschel 33GL, all coming from F/88. This particular truck 4830 was then registered FA-5619. Most those Henschels were later transferred during the early 40s from the SAF to the Army (with the creation of the Air Ministry in 1940 all vehicles received a new EA plates and this one is not among them), the Army was on need of them to tow the 7,5 & 8,8 Flak guns in army AA units.
This makes it one of only 3 -to date- known (documented) LC vehicles in existence. The other 2 surviving Henschels 33 in Spain may also be former LC but I don't have their chassis or engine numbers to confirm.
I hope this helps.
Un saludo desde Bélgica.
