That would be a Ssangyong, and they do - or at least did - have connections to Mercedes. I remember their SUVs that they sold here in Europe used to have Mercedes engines, too.

Hello Bengt,

YEP, that is a "Ssangyong" with the last version of the "NG-series" cab but with "Korean" fenders, grill, bumper and headlights!!!!!

BTW, very nice "catch" of a very "typical" Korean "heavy duty truck"!!!!!
And for me a very nice "original" picture for 1 of my many "modelling-idea's"!!!!!

Greetings from Germany,
