A Swiss Mowag GW3500 in GS configuration. The Mowag is based on Dodge Power Wagon mechanical components. Soft-top cab and rear body with seats.

A Saurer M6 is towing a 10,5cm howitzer. The M6 were produced from 1940-48 and appeared with cargo and house-type van bodies. The Saurer M4, M6 and M8 range had a very sophisticated cross-country chassis with many novel features.

Note: The driver is sitting on the left side, instead of right side. The pic was published like that.
