Saurer engines, trucks and buses always had an opinion of being indestructables and easy to maintain. It is obvious that Rudolf Diesel who invented compression-ignition engine, and worked for Saurer, had a great technical influence in this company. That’s why, when in 30ties Poland started to search the license for eficient diesel engines and reliable chassis the choice was easy to make. Lots of heavy trucks and buses were made for Polish Army and for public transport. After defeat of Poland in 1939, lots of them were used by Germans and Russians for civil and military purposes.
This Saurer is a typical construction from the twenties, so it can be easily converted to Magirus or Lancia.
