Hanomag-Henschel Transporter

Make & Model Family

The Harburger transporter (otherwise known as the transporter Hanomag/MB) is the name for a series of vans, under the name Hanomag, then Hanomag-Henschel, and latterly as Mercedes-Benz. The history of the vehicles goes back to the construction of the Matador model of the Speed company in Hamburg Harburg. Speed was taken over 1965 by Hanomag and starting from 1966 the vehicles were sold under the name Rheinstahl Hanomag. After the parent company Rhine steel had merged their two commercial motor vehicle manufacturers Hanomag and Henschel in 1969 to create Hanomag Henschel, the vehicles were produced under this name. In 1970 Hanomag Henschel was bought out by Daimler Benz and the vehicles were then produced under the Mercedes Benz marque.
The name Matador was no longer used from 1967 and the vehicles were renamed Hanomag. F 20, F 25, F 30 and F35 designations were sold. The permissible total weights lay between 2000 kg and 3550 kg. Diesel or Petrol engines were available, with Diesel engines from Hanomag and the petrol engines bought in from Austin. The vehicles were front wheel drive. The Harburger transporter became as Minibus, Box van and Flat bed van with single, double or triple cab all available in high or low sided version.
In 1969 the Harburger transporter under the name Hanomag Henschel was phased out. The use of Hanomag engines ended in 1970; from then diesel engines were Mercedes Benz ones while the petrol engines remained Austin ones.
