The Mercedes-Benz type Lo 3500, Lo 3750 resp. O 3750 omnibuses had 32 to 43 seats and were therefore classified as heavy omnibuses by the Wehrmacht. More than the commercial lorries, the buses with their long wheelbases suffered under the worse road conditions in the east. The shown bus is a Mercedes-Benz type Lo 3750 which is identifiable by the simple ventilation louvres in the side plates of the engine bonnet.









Commencing in 1936, engine bonnet side plates with each four horizontal louvres were used. In 1937, the Lo 3750 was renamed O 3750 without any noticeable changes in the construction.
