The army and maybe the airforce had 911s ,some 4x4.........I think maybe Coca Cola may have had some 911s as body trucks.......When the army signed up for the Unimogs,there was supposed to be a manufacturing offset,with Benz parts being made here ........unfortunately ,the deal seems to have lapsed pretty early on,and I know the OZ spring production for cars was judged substandard and cancelled.
2626 would have been a big jigger, in the day.
The Coke (Linfox?) 911s were a special spine chassis build, to accommodate the special bottle body, IIRC. It was a Coke patented design and part of the deal with Linfox, was that the chassis would be cut up at the end of service with Linfox/Coke, to prevent any other drink company being able to use the design.
Around the time we are looking at three horse power rating systems were being used. The British standard horse was roughly 10% bigger than a metric DIN one, with America using ponies so might be that the 205 =180 using the different standards.
A good example was that the Volvo G88 was advertised as 270 hp here and 240 hp in the UK.
V8Ian The SEC (State Electricity Commission) here in Victoria ran a fleet of L911's with hole boring augers as electricity pole erectors. My late Father-In-Law was the driver of Winch Truck No. 1.
Regarding German beer, don't make the mistake of judging all beer by the one you know. Many countries have very different formulae and gas levels in beer. Some places have beer that is almost completely flat, with no head, and others have much more head than Aussie beer. Those girls certainly must have strong wrists. I am pretty sure I could not lift that number of jugs of any beer. It is mostly water that weighs one kilo per litre!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

My local is a German pub, the german beers have a mark in the glass where the beer ends and the head begins and they are also poured from a different style of tap. At times when desperate they have run Australian beer through the german style tap and it ends up with a head that no australian beer drinker would want. In the litre steins the head is about two inches thick.

Overnight you are dead right. Funny how when I was driving the similar Commer I thought those Mercedes looked really "boofy" and unattractive. Looking at the photos they don't seem too bad from this distance in time.
