The RHD and kei size was the give-away.

Nice to have you back and posting, Ram.

Doesn't the Suzuki look like a miniature Amby hatch from this angle?!!

Well done Moralfibre,correct name but wrong year this is a 1953 version
and i saw it in the German VW museum at the autostadt .
Such a shame about the one in Puna,would be great to get this renovated.

From 1949 to 1962, produced a with a trailing-arm rear sus system which incorporated in the cross bar assembly. It had a very modern layout with a front engine and but the engine was remarkably underpowered. The van was first equipped with a the prewar two-cylinder 700 cc F8 engine rated at 20 hp (22 hp after 1952). This was definitely not enough when the van was fully loaded. Things went (a little) better in 1955 when the van received the F9's three cylinder unit with 900 cc, producing 32 hp (24 kW).
Thanks to its layout the van had a low floor configuration, with the load areas about 40 cm (16 in) from the ground. It was also fitted with a large single rear door fitted to hinges on the right-hand side.
The van was also produced in Vitoria, Spain, by Industrias del Motor S.A. (IMOSA) from 1954. DKW (pronounced "de-ca-uve") became a common term for any van, and is still used today. The Spanish subsidiary also produced a modern successor, introduced in 1963 and called DKW F 1000 L. This van started with the three cylinder 1000 cc engine, but later received a Mercedes-Benz Diesel engine and finally was renamed a Mercedes-Benz in 1975.
producing the "Schnellaster" the previous 10 years, the factory had closed its doors.

Friends:

Approximately over two years ago, I was driving in the quiet Erandwana neighbourhood in the heart of Pune the other day, when quite unexpectedly, I noticed this very very rare van, just lurking there without plates.

I had posted this quaint leaf green van, on this very Guess the Car Thread,
as Post #1031.

Click to zoom


It is a 1952 DKW Schnellaster F89L.

It was Auto-union's first Post World War II model. Auto-union later became Audi. Thence the four-ring logo.

The DKW Schnellaster was also the first model produced in Ingolstadt, on the banks of the Danube in central Bavaria.

It had a two-cylinder two-stroke engine that drove the front wheels.
The chassis was made of square-section tubing.

The Schnellaster's front suspension had wishbones sprung by a high-mounted inverted transverse leaf spring.
Its rear suspension used trailing Pitman arms with a transverse torsion bar element.



The first model was the 1949-1952 Schnellaster F89L with a 688 cc that developed 20 bhp @ 3600 rpm and drove a three-speed gearbox.

Note the 4-ring Audi logo on the block.



Note the unusual side mounted fan, radiator at the rear of the engine compartment and fuel tank within the engine compartment.


Like the eyes of a crab, the Schnellaster's headlamps were mounted on stalks. The bonnet had external lenses, through which the headlamps shone. The one-piece windshield was swept by a single wiper.

The low slung chassis and compact rear axle made possible many different versions: minibus, panel delivery van, "Kombi" combination passenger delivery van, flatbed, low loader flatbed, pickup and cab+chassis for special superstructures.

The Kombi, I found in Pune two years ago, combined the cargo capacity of a delivery van with folding seats for 5-7 people + driver. It was in very rough condition. The front doors were hinged at the rear (suicide doors).



The load space of the delivery van accommodated 5 cu.m. of cargo (2230 x 1390 x 1575 mm) with an external length of 4177 mm and width of 1670 mm.



The next model, made 1952 to 1954, had a 22 bhp motor driving a 4-speed gearbox.
Then came the type 30, built from 1954 to 1955, with a 792 cc 30 bhp motor. Schnellaster fans call this engine, the "Büffel".

From 1955 to 1962 the engine was a 32 BHP 896 cc unit.
This engine was called a 3=6. It had three power strokes per crankshaft revolution, like a six-cylinder four-stroke engine.
Auto-union advertising said,
"drei Kraftimpulse pro Kurbelwellen-Umdrehung, genau wie beim Sechszylinder-Viertakter."

There was even an exotic DKW Elektrowagen which used a 4 kW electric motor to attain 40 km/h feeding off 80 Volt, 210 Ampere-hour batteries. Power stations were installed on the road for over the counter exchange of batteries as well as on Germany's East-Frisian islands, which banned vehicles with internal combustion engines.

DKW literature spelled the name both as "Schnellaster" and as "Schnell-Laster".

Here is a blue bus (MPV) owned today by a collector who transports it to auto exhibitions on a trailer.



And here is a flatbed truck.

Sometime in 1999, Auto India featured a detailed article on this marque, spread over 2-3 issues. Dont remember who wrote it, but the detail and specifications were amazing. Karl, do you remember?
Well done, it is indeed a 1940 LaSalle, the last year of production.

I recall the Auto India article, have archived the issue, but can't say I remember much else.

I too had the pleasure of seeing and photographing this car at the Autostadt a few years ago, though the positioning was different. The Pune car has deteriorated further since.

Correct, its a 1966 Chevelle Malibu, hardtop (coz it looks like one ) seems to be an easy one. I had a Funskool drag scale model based on this one. It was I think a 1:42 one or maybe a bit more small.

Graham Blue Streak - very handsome I think. Discussed extensively in the recent VCCCI rally thread.

Default Wanderlust!

ID 654 is a Wanderer W25K Roadster, the parent company now being one of the 4 rings of Audi, right Wasif bhai?

This is what it looks like from the front:

If anyone's interested, Ricko makes a superb 1:18 scale model of this very car. Definitely in my wishlist of European beauties, along with the Merc SSK and the Horch 855 Roadster. Someone please arrange the shipping!
