Kfz 17 radio car walkaround

The Kfz 17 radio car was the smallest fully enclosed radio vehicle used by the German Wehrmacht. Built on a 4 x 4 Horch 901 Einheits Pkw chassis the vehicle weighs in over 3 ton. A wooden framed closed body was build with some minor variations, the Kfz 17 equipped for medium/short wave radio sets using a roof frame antenna, the Kfz17/1 equipped with VHF radio sets using a ground plane antenna, A Kfz 17 telephone exchange vehicle and a Kfz 17 cable measuring vehicle for which little information survives. All surviving Kfz17's surviving today seem to be built on chassis built by Horch (rather than Wanderer or Opel variant of the Einheits Pkw). It is estimated that 20% of the Horch production totalling 50.000 units was used for closed body Kfz 17 variants. Today only a handful of complete Kfz17's survive, the example pictured here is currently the only complete and running example in the world.
