The car was first on a display in Belgium at the Victory Mermorial Museum in Arlon before it was sold with the complete collection of this museum to the USA.

The 170VK has many detail mistakes and is not original, the dashboard, seats some of the wheels are not  from this type 170VK.

I have got more pictures of the car and it is a bad fake! The chassi number is from a 1937 car. The body is crude and home made without using a wooden frame. I looks like a real 170VK at a distance and maybe the firewall and the doors are original but the rest isn't. The price is at present $25000... but the reserve is higher.

I have more original 170VK parts than that! Anyone interested at $30000?
It is crazy that people bid on a car like that without checking it out.

The bidding ended at 30000 and it didn't reach the reserve price...
