Description

Prototypes of the first AHx truck, the AHS2, were unveiled by 1939. It was aimed at replacing the similar AGC truck (which had a maximum payload of 1.5 tonnes). The truck was designed to be used by the French military on the 2.5-tonne carrying capacity group, but it was rejected. The Wehrmacht in turn ordered the production of the model, reclassifying it as a 2-tonne payload model and naming it Lastkraftwagen 2.
This Renault truck is ex.-Afrika Korps and finished in regiment colours – with a modest 12,936 km recorded on the odometer, this very quirky piece of French and German motoring and military history remains in very good condition throughout. Subject to a recent restoration and equipped with many of its extras such as its shovel, ropes and netting.
Offered at No Reserve on 18th May 2019 at Chiswick House.
