    Some more details of the supporting wheel/spare. The first one shows how the wheel is nicely positioned to help raise the truck of the edges. The second shows details of the "hub" after the wheel has been removed. You can see that it is actually connected as a none-powered wheel.

    Translation - Two-Headed Monster DAF means "van Doorne Automobiel Fabriek". Van Doorrne was a genius in designing cars and trailers. He also designed the Variomatic, a fully automatic step-less transmission. As effect of this, the DAF could drive backwards as quick as forwards ... in 1958.

    Going to van Dam Onderdelen early February, for parts of my M51A2. Saw some of my childhood memories and dream wishes there last time I was there. The DAF YA 126 Ambulance. My dream car. Only problem: originally uses the 6 cylinder Hercules gasser, using more than the average 5-ton truck.

    11Echo, where is the location CT W.R. Nice DAF Y126. Where was the picture taken? Not really important, but do you have any more details on that car? What interests me is that this car has a Dutch military license plate of a newer type (yellow color). The plates started with KL or LM and...
