G.M. Ross Coachbuilder / Car Designer - Denmark ? SEEKING INFO


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently acquired a large collection of original car and truck design blueprints and some drawings from the late 1920s-1930s. All signed with the name G.M. Ross. I acquired them from Germany but they appear to originate from Denmark (Danish text)

Does anyone have any information on the coachbuilder / company / designer? Some examples attached but there are many more in the collection

 

Thanks,

Mike

It might be worth posting these on the Coachbuild.com European forum. Someone there might know of a coachbuilder in Odense.

The drawing with the Hoffman front wheel drive setup is interesting. I don't imagine any of those ever got built.


Thank you! Based on additional searches, this seems to be "De Forenede Automobilfabrikker" or Thrige

The overall lot is a mix of cars and commercial trucks, as well as a few ships

This blueprint looks to be for a Bentley, perhaps a Speed Six.   Clearly, G.M. Ross was a skilled, talented designer.

Very interesting! G.M. Ross was definitely a very talented designer and there are a very wide range of vehicles and body styles in this collection including many commercial trucks

I see you have some of them listed on ebay.

Yes, I am slowly listing and selling some items from this collection - there are many more still available that are not listed. I posted here seeking information rather than sale but am open to discussing if anyone is interested in them
