Flatbed tractor trailer (MB LPS 333).
The Pullman has character - back then, as a flatbed tractor-trailer operated by the Gustav Mäuler forwarding company and today as a 1:87 WIKING model. No wonder that the fire red colours of this Remscheid forwarding company turned heads wherever their Mercedes-Benz semi-trailers with the forward-control tractor units turned up. Only two years after the height of the Great Depression Gustav Mäuler went into business for himself as a small haulier in 1934. And later, after the war, when his entrepreneurial spirit along with his optimism were reignited, he expanded the fleet of his forwarding company by adding - primarily - MAN machines, but also some vehicles made by Mercedes-Benz. Throughout the decades, the company stayed true to the typical design of the company name and the flanks of the flatbed - the white name of the founder with its black shadowing became the distinguishing marks of these long-distance transporters.
