The 917T was supplied to body makers of the choice of the German Military as a chassis/cab and a chassis/cowl (front body but no windscreen or cab). The branch of the service then specified which type of body should be fitted. Later on in the war, 1944, it was ordered that a standard wooden cab be put on virtually all vehicles including the V3000s Fords. This was done to save valuable iron and steel. It was a very squared off affair, very basic woodwork. It is called an “Einheits” cab.
