US Steyr "BEAN WAGON"



well here go's.. recently i found this picture and as the rest of the Aussie lads know i'm quite fond of building any softskin be it german, american ,british i just love my trucks ...The photo shows a German Steyr no history to the picture ,,any clues as to what it might be used for ??? and well worked over with the GAS axe by some imaginative Americans ..i cant tell for certain that shes been through the spray booth ,for a quick coat of olive but going by the stars and reg numbers thats the color i'll go for ..the trailer or wagon looks like an every day gypsy caravan i found some pictures of these with there ornate fittings etc and will post more as i progress with this build the trailer will be scratchbuilt

i have the OOP Tankworkshop wheels with chains on the way and the eduard PEset hidden on the workbench somewhere ..more pics to follow

Note the rear wheels may be from an Opel Blitz or any other late eight bolt pattern wheel, not the same as the Steyr.

I loved this picture when Pat posted it over at Missing-Lynx, so I am quite excited to see someone give this a shot (way beyond my meager skills). I am really looking forward to watching how you pull this project together. Good luck!

Hi Jimmy,

It looks to me, and the name kind of hints that it could be some sort of cobbled together "mess" wagon. That'd be my guess. Should be very fun build.

I too have been looking at the photo and contemplating doing this. I assume you saw Pat's posting on ML?
