Witte diesel electric
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:28:31 AM »
I have a question about a witte diesel electric 12 hp and 8kw
Did witte ever make them in black?
The seller said its unmolested and the paint looks original  but I have not seen any that were black.
It's a md sn# D1521 the wife thinks it maybe a D1621   help with any info like dating or history would would be great.
Thanks
Also what's the difference between the MD model  and the CL model?
