I was gonna say, that looks like back when they were doing a wholesale ripoff of the Tatra instead of just a dressed up copy.

"Only eight or nine of the vehicles -- the jury is out on just how many units were produced -- were built from 1934 to 1939."

Must be fun trying to find parts.....

His fleet of vintage automobiles includes a 1941 Mercedes Benz custom-built for Nazi leader Hermann Goering

Legit.

One of these made the Interstate Battery trip across America in the early 1990's. They made a stop in Dallas and I got to see it up close.

Everyone was wondering why it took so long for this body style to catch on.
