German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks
German term or phrase:Frontlenker(fahrzeug)
Es geht um den VW Kastenwagen / Fensterbus T2a von 1968
Die Übersetzung: cab-over-engine truck ist nicht passend, da der Motor hinten ist.
Es geht darum, dass das Fahrzeug keine Schnauze hat und somit die Fahrerkabine ganz vorne ist.
Kennt jemand den handelsüblichen Begriff von VW?
Explanation: I recall this being used on occasion by owners of the things, but I can`t vouch for it being the official VW term. One used to see them regularly burning at the side of the autobahns - a major design defect with the fuel pipelines!
