Baby Steyr Goes to War

After the anschluss of Austria, the Steyr "Baby" streamline compact car has been converted into a Model 250 Kübelwagen (small personnel transport).
It retained its conventional layout with rear drive and front-mounted 1158cc water-cooled boxer engine. Suspension and gearbox were altered.
Between 1938 and 1940, 1200 Steyr 250 cars were produced for the German Army.

I love Steyr. I built a model of a ROS/1 Tractor and a Kommandeurwagen
