Hi Bert,
I believe it is a Polish PZInz 723. The only reference pic I have is here from Holger's site:

Thank you, Bert. I am humbled by your kind words.
This one is not so difficult but I like it because it still has its beautiful factory paint:

Hello Bert,
The corrugated effect of the boot lid indicates that it's a member of the Horch family but I can't pin it down to a specific model, I'm afraid.
While trying to identify the particular model I found a photograph of what is described as an 'armoured Horch 830' which I'll add to the 'identity requests' thread. It's an interesting photo but I'm not convinced that the caption is correct.
Rob.

Hi Rob,

thank You very much for the hint. With Your help I could find a pic of a Horch type 830 BL looking identically like the car on the pic Max posted. This car is still existing and looking phantastic. Only the bumpers are not original.

Rob, I think that You should go on with the quiz. Max, are You of a different opinion?

Best regards

Bert

B.t.w.: thank You very much for this special and great pic of an armored car (You are right, it is not a Horch, but a Stoewer).

Hello Bert.
I'm pleased that you were able to confirm my identification of the improvised armoured car; it was 2am and I was unable to sleep because of a streaming cold so I wasn't at my best.
Hence my mixing up yourself and Max! For which my apologies to the both of you.
I'm happy to leave the final decision regarding the quiz to Max.
Regards, Rob.

Hello Gentlemen,
Tough call. As far as I'm concerned you are both winners but since Bert has deferred to you, Rob please carry on with quiz and fair play to you both.
For the record here is the untouched quiz photo with a big fat clue on the boot:

Hello all.
My thanks to Bert and Max for passing on the next entry in the quiz to me.
I suspect that it won't take take long to solve as there are some obvious clues in the photograph.
A short distance in front of us is the distinctive humped rear of a kfz 2 signals car and what might be a civilian saloon; I'm interested in the vehicle to our front left.
Regards to all, Rob.

Hello Max.
You're quite right, of course, it's a BMW; I can't be sure about the exact model without seeing the ventilation grilles on the bonnet sides. The large stowage boxes on the running boards and the seats help to identity the manufacturer.
We mentioned the seats in a post in early September in relation to the DKW Kubelwagen's tubular design and I remember reading somewhere that the seats on a BMW were made from plywood.
Once again, very well done and I look forward to seeing your next entry.
Regards, Rob.

Thanks Rob,
I know something about plywood seats having once owned a Morgan 4/4. The seat bottoms were actually an inflatable leather covered bladder set on a plywood base. At least the seat backs were properly upholstered leather. Those were the days when men were men and British sports cars were designed to challenge their ability to withstand discomfort. :D

Anyway here is the new quiz:

Hi Max,

a very good question! Could that be in Finland and a Swedish Volvo type LV 101 "Sharpnose"?

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Excellent! It is indeed. Here's another view without Mr. Bean standing in the way:

Please carry on.

Hi Max,

thank You very much!
Here is my new question: who can ID this well-camouflaged vehicle?

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
I may be mistaken but AFAIK only the Büssing-NAG type G 31 has those "bullhorns" on the brush guard.
