Ein tolles Zitat, dem ich nur zustimmen kann. Weiterhin gute Fahrt.
Peter Weissenhorn’s LA 312: an all-wheel drive vacuum truck
In 1959 Peter Weissenhorn’s father started up his family business. His most important working tool in those days was a used Mercedes-Benz truck.
The model series.
The LA 312: by the time the series was replaced in 1961, almost 7,000 vehicles had been delivered to customers. The trucks from Mannheim were increasingly being bought by foreign customers. Even in India, Brazil and Argentina, the trucks sold like hot cakes. The vehicles were exported either completely assembled or in kit form.
A decisive factor in the success of this series was the OM 312 engine: this legendary inline six-cylinder unit impressed owners with its ability to cover incredibly high mileages.
