I am unsure sorry,

Is anyone able to tell me what the German text under this picture says?

Looks like it is setup for offroad / North Afrika driving in the sand as a buggy?

Hi Des , the Mercedes-Benz 130 H has big wheels but has no all wheel drive and has a litlle space under neath the car, for off road driving it was not so good.

Daimler Benz built the 130 H as Kübelwagen , not for Africa , the cars were delivered to the German Reichswehr.
A prototyp was built also and called 120 H.
