Mercedes-Benz LP 1513 fuel oil tank truck.

In 1965 Mercedes-Benz introduced a new medium-duty truck series geared to the varied needs of distribution work. The model series, which included this LP 1513, was distinguished by the angular cab and the cab-over-engine configuration. Special bodies permitted an extremely wide range of uses, among other things as a fuel oil tanker.
