No, there are two different cars in these pictures. The one with a front bumper and the external trafficators is the one that Paul Russell restored.

Thanks Henry

You mentioned before that you had a drive of the restored Autobahn-Kurier in a car park?

What were your impressions?

The rear window looks simply there for decoration, can you actually see anything out of it?


Kind Regards
Des

I drove the 320 Streamlined sedan in a park, not a car park. There were park roads, but it wasn't a big enough park to get any speed. The rear windows were bigger but I wasn't concerned about what was behind me.
