I seem to remember reading somewhere that German open top vehicles (in this case Sd Kfz 251s) , the fighting compartment was painted the same as the exterior and driver’s area was elfenbein. Later the whole interior was the exterior color (by this time dunkelgelb. 'Course now I can’t find the reference. Yes? No? Maybe? And, if so, what time frame?
As far as I know, only 251 Ausf. A got the driver area in elfenbein.
All that had Dunkelgelb exterior got it inside as well
Dunkelgelb came in Feb 43. Ausf Cs were made in 42. Ausf D started production in 43 but not sure when (Maybe varied by maker?) Wouldnt the Cs be elfenbein too.
Least the ones made afore the paint switch
As said, As far as I know, only 251 Ausf. A got the driver area in elfenbein.
First one is interesting … post war on it’s way to the US? Says captured and the fitting on the right looks rather ship like. Looks like an Ausf C. Was there an overlap between C and D prodution? Or, if an early vehicle was repainted would the drivers area have been repainted too. Looks like Last one, from the uniforms, looks early on but the paint job doesnt look like dunkelgrau.
