Hitler is most often seen during the 1930 before WW2 in various 770's and 770k's
k= kompressor or supercharged

During the war years Hitler could be seen often in a grey fleet of 6 wheeled Mercedes Benz cars called G4's

have a look at this:

These were more suited to off road driving in places like Poland and Eastern Europe where the roads were mud tracks.



If you have a look through the past pages on the forum you can see many pictures of these fascinating and breathtaking cars.
