Robert’s Collection

Robert’s Collection

My close friend Erwin knows Robert. Robert has one of the largest collections in Europe. It is private, not available to the public. These photos are only a partial glimpse of them, and none are for sale. I was privileged enough to be invited in for a private showing one afternoon.


An original long wheelbase MB. I have never seen one of these.

An International M426 pulling an original unrestored refrigeration trailer used to haul meat. The trailer has a jeep engine up front that ran the compressor for the cooling. The walls of the trailer were about 4″ thick.
The building vents allowed dirt and debris to get blown inside so everything was dirty and covered in spider webs. White 666
