ER Classics Desktop 2022

The 328s were in military jargon"Big Daf" because of the characteristic, heavy engine noise and the impressive appearance.
The official type designations are composed in the following way:

Y = military vehicle
A = general, (F = fuel C = Crashtender)
3 = load capacity
1 respectively. 2 = the series,
8= the number of rotating wheels.
In this case, 8 because the two high-placed spare wheels are counted as they are mounted freely rotating and serve as ancillary function as so-called "support wheels." switchable front-wheel drive.
These trucks were equipped with the H drive, patented by H. van Doorne. At the end of the 50 years, factory 2 YA 328 fire engines were built. Later 2 fire engines were built on the chassis of 2 artillery tractors. The engines are, as far as known, all equipped with double carburetors. The body superstructures differ from each other with at least 3 vehicles. All 4 vehicles still exist.
