So this should give some of you a chuckle.   Watch big Al's face when the car starts.  I want to point out that this car always starts so I'm not sure what he's shocked about.

 

 

Love it

This is not a Mercedes but looks great. But ther is aback graound on a car... please be advised...

 

Dav,

 

I think the price and the following paragraph give away the issue.   Btw,  I've sat in this car and it is beautiful.

 

This rare and elegant Horch is one of a handful of late-production Type 780 B models in existence, featuring gorgeous sport cabriolet coachwork by Gläserkarosserie, GmbH. This stunning automobile was meticulously restored to a very high standard by a noted marque specialist, with subtle improvements for relaxed, enjoyable touring. This car was the third-from-last 780 B chassis constructed, delivered to an unknown owner in 1934. After World War II, it made its way to Belarus, where it spent the next six decades quietly hidden away. At the time of its discovery in 2005, the original coachwork was long lost, so the restorers paired it with this marvelous and well-preserved Sportcabriolet body, understood to be a Gläser creation first fitted to a Horch Type 710 chassis.

Engine for identification. This is the Nurb. 500 motor but the motor is different from the original.

Who knows about these differences?

No not from Poland, it is in Poland now but originally from midwest in US. Sat for 50 years in previous owner's garage. I shipped it to Poland to restore. Why did you think of Poland? Have you heard of this car or maybe someone elses?
