Büssing-NAG III GL 6






Already in the early 1920s, the draughtsmen of Büssing could make first experiences for the manufacturing of six-wheel lorries. In 1924, the heavy duty lorry Büssing VI GL with a payload of around 6 tons was presented. About 2,000 (most probably including omnibuses) vehicles were made until 1930. Probably, the Reichswehr procured several vehicles of this type. Around the beginning in 1925, Büssing started the development of a six- wheel lorry for military purposes. As of 1926/27, the development was continued according to the demands of the HWA. No exact data is available but according to the previously mentioned overall view about the situation of the motor trials, dated 1st January 1930, the trials were completed at or about this time. Up until 1938, 343 vehicles of the Büssing type III GL 6, beginning in 1931 designated Büssing-NAG type III GL 6, were manufactured. However, there are indications that production had already ceased by 1935. An unknown number of these vehicles were sold to Turkey. These vehicles had a crew cab and single-tyre arrangement on the rear axles.
