Does anyone know what the Freikorps armoured car in the attached pic is?

Doe anyone have a pic of a Freikorps Poplavko-Jeffery?

According to Rainer Strasheim in the Tankograd book on German Armoured Cars it's a Russian Packard fitted with an

improvised gun mount with a 2cm Becker cannon.

The same book has a couple of images of the Freikorps Jeffrey-Poplavko - it's noted the ex-Russian armoured car only

made a brief appearance on the streets of Berlin in January 1919.

Regards,

Charlie

Hi Charlie, I am trying (unsucessfully) to find out the dimensions of the Packard armored car. Do you know which Packard chassis was used?
