Büssing-NAG express lorries type “Burglöwe”






After the fusion of Büssing with NAG to Büssing-NAG in 1930, the NAG express-lorry series was adopted to the joint lorry programme of Büssing-NAG. Originally, the type designation was a two-digit number (e.g. Büssing-NAG type 15). In 1932 it was changed to a three-digit number (now Büssing-NAG type 150) caused by the introduction of the type 275. Vehicles with long wheelbase had an additional L in the type designation. Beginning in 1934, these vehicles were also offered powered by a diesel engine. These vehicles got an additional D for diesel engine. Beginning in 1935, the express-lorries powered by a petrol engine got the epithet Burglöwe.
The revised express-lorry programme was offered beginning in 1935/36. The vehicles had a modernized radiator mask. The inter-types had been ceased. In 1937/38, the express-lorries were modernized once again. The engine bonnet was changed to the modern type with the typical Büssing-Spider which was designed by Neumann-Neander.

The Büssing-NAG type 15/150 Burglöwe was the smalles vehicle of the series. It is identifiable by the single tyre arrangement on the rear axle.









With this design of the radiator mask, the Büssing-NAG express-lorries were made from 1931 to 1936. The driver’s cab indicates a late series vehicle. The shown lorry is most probably a Büssing-NAG type 250.









This is a nice frontal view of a Büssing-NAG type 2.5 25 Burglöwe on a muddy road in Russia. Note the radiator mask introduced in 1935. The vehicle was propelled by either a diesel engine or a petrol engine with a power of each 65 HP.









Based on the Büssing-NAG Burglöwe, police vans were manufactured, too. The exposed lower part of the steering column was typically for the Büssing-NAG express-lorries. The vehicle also had the modernized radiator mask introduced in 1935/36.









The modernized version of the 3 ton lorry was introduced in 1936, too. Primarily, the radiator mask had been redesigned. This Büssing-NAG type 30/300 Burglöwe had the open standard driver’s cab of the Wehrmacht. But this type was produced for the Wehrmacht only in small numbers.









To integrate the express-lorries to the offer of Büssing-NAG in a better way, the new radiator mask with the Büssing-spider was adopted between 1937 and 1938. This formerly civilian vehicle had a widened platform and racks at the front of the vehicle used for the transportation of long materials.
