The best pictures I could find:
KNIL 6de Eskadron Vechtwagens

8ste Eskadron Vechtwagens:

This one is strange looking, does anyone know why the car is looking like this?


And my absolute favourite pic of the vehicle: Officers conferring in and around their C15TA during operations in Westeren Sumatra, january 1949.
