This model was patterned from USA 1938 Ford. But main outer difference of German Ford is one-piece windscreen.
Central vertical bar of the grille of German Ford has equal thickness everywhere, US Ford has more thick upper part of it.
Some trucks were fitted by Imbert gas producers. Ford G917T and G997T have gas cooler in front of the grille,
G987T carried such unit under the motor division. Diameter of the gas producer 550mm (placed in cargo box behind the cab).
Few examples of Sanitätskraftwagen Kfz.31 were built by bodymaker company "Christian Miesen", with longer wheelbase
and single rear wheels.
