Unique police car (only 1 left) for personnel transportation 1939. Original Mercedes Benz L2500 chassis. (MB L2500 Pol.Mtw.)

This cabriolet-type truck belonged to military police. "Mercedes-Benz L 2500 (Pol.Mtw.)" 1939. The truck is in great and fully complete condition, from small devices to engine. 

The truck belonged to German military police in occupied Norway and was bought in 1970 by german collector from norwegian land owner. Later (in 2008) Leibstandarte bought the truck and completely renovated including frame's repair, engine and all original parts, electronics and original devices.

The truck passed throw a full cycle of restoration. We fixed all mechanisms and parts. We took care very gently. It's very difficult to find a truck in any condition. Truck's restoration is much more expensive compare to civil car because they were used non-stop.
