I came across this in a television documentary hence the blue tint on the photograph. What is the basis of this Umabu ?

Hi Max,


thank You very much for Your excellent reply. I have another suggestion:
how about a Mercedes-Benz type 260 Stuttgart (W 11)?

Best regards

Bert
Hi Bert,
That was my first thought but unlike the Tourenwagen in your photo the body style of the Cabriolet D I show in the first photo had suicide doors in the front. But you make a good case.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max. Appreciate your food for thought. I try to upload higher quality photo but said over limit size so sorry. I didn't notice the door handle situation. Could it be possibly a 15/70/100 ? bonnet might not be flat enough. On a second look at the bonnet it looks like they have it folded over from mid section and working on engine. Do they even fold that way or is that an optical illusion. Adrian. Hopefully a better quality photo for you
Hello Adrian,
Thanks for the better photo. I still can't tell for sure whether that is a flat grill or the Vee shape of a 15/70/100. The body style looks good to me but it has 12 spoke wheels unlike the picture.

Interesting question, eh?

Hi Alan,
The basis of that umbau (and many others) was the Ford V8-G81A Spezial Kabriolett ca. 1938-41.

Hi dredd,

to Your quesion about the Büssing trucks:

the first two from the left could be the type 550 from the year 1936 (five flaps = engine FD 6, with the old cabin, but already with the modern designed radiator grille); the third could be the type 650, the next three could be the type 500.

Regards

Bert

Hi Patrick,
I think it is an NSU Tourenwagen ca. 1928. Here is a similar example from Oswald's Deutsche Autos 1920-1945.

Hi Sturm,
I think so. All the Kfz. 91 pics I have are open cab while the Kfz. 73's are closed cab like this one. They otherwise look quite similar.
