I'd suspect it was wired for a trailer connector there. It is relatively easy to modify an American alternator to put out 100+ volts DC for a short time, but I doubt that is what is going on there.
Also fitted an Anhangkuppler. Trailer hitch ball. Called AHK in German ads.

Here's you can see how close they really were, only inches between everything. This is when we finally got the camper moved and the wife was pretty happy to get in to them.

Thanks everyone, super excited to get them both! I'm not really sure what the electrical inlet is on the 63 yet, not really crawled around them and checked them out too much yet. The 63 is light grey though with a Turkis Decklid and Turkis passenger door on it. I did find the og paint light grey decklid and door in the barn however. The 63 came Mcoded with a 1500 engine and hoops and canvas, I was really hoping the hoops and canvas would be in the barn somewhere but no luck.

The extraction was a pain lol. Had a 1968 Truck bed camper blocking them that I tried 2 different trailers that wouldn't fit underneath and tried 2 different trucks which also wouldn't work. Came back day 2 and was able to borrow someone else's trailer to get it pulled out. When it came to pulling them out the 66 was the worst as it was wedged between the other bus and a wooden post. Luckily all that worked out though and was able to get them pulled out without any issues.

Here's you can see how close they really were, only inches between everything. This is when we finally got the camper moved and the wife was pretty happy to get in to them.

'63 a Turkis Truck?


Looks light grey with a turkis decklid. Hard to say with that layer of dust.

58euro, yes, that owner sure did squeeze them in. How difficult was it to extricate? Good for you and good for all of us to see that the barn finds are still out there. Applause Applause Applause

Not everyday you have someone tell you they know of 2 single cabs in a barn and they end up being 2 double cabs! Spent the last 2 days getting these guys dug out of hibernation. The 63 was parked in 81 and the 66 was parked in 77. Old owner definitely squeezed them in there.

You get what you see says the ad. Looks like for $7000 you get the leaves that are hiding the floor. Hard to see what you get!
