Images 1365 % 1369 are interesting since the text on the front bumper and the rear end say "Baujahr 1947" (built in 1947).

AFAIK, the SS/ST-100 production officially ended in 1951, but 15 more were built in 1953, like the one below :

1371


On a side note, the SS/ST-100 was also used by the French Forces in Germany after WW2 :

I was surprised to see as well so I’ve checked: the SS55 was in production 1933-1943, the SS100 1936-1951; most of the surviving examples of the latter are most likely post-war.

# 1413 and 1415 are incredibly ugly.
I am sorry to say this but these two are among the uglier cars/trucks that I have ever seen.
Sometimes a rebuild is done out of necessity and the results should not be judged in some beauty contest but these two ....
