It does not look like Goa. Looks like UAE and there are UAE on the Rolls.

Got sometime to take pictures of the DKW today. Thinking of restoring it. It has no engine.

That should be an interesting DKW to restore. I haven't seen another car like this before. Karl can confirm.

There are 2 more cars of the same type in Goa.

This DKW looks familiar, one of the two I have probably seen. Is this now stored somewhere in Verna?

You should restore this car, its a very cute car. I think this is a late 1950's model.

Do let me know where you will undertake the restore will surely drop by.

Let me see if it is even possible to get the engine for this car. I will enquire around. This forum will help too.

That is actually not a DKW but an Auto Union 1000 sedan, the precursor of the Audi.

There was an identical car almost with teh same colours in Hyderabad too with a old Christian Gent who was into music.

Does anyone know where his car is now.

My friend Zozy used to look after the car for him.

See these pics. The first car is a DKW and the next is the Auto Union 1000

DKW was a part of Auto Union. This one came with a 2 stroke engine which had DKW written on it.

You are correct but the car was marketed as an Auto Union. The engine etc was a carry over from pre Auto Union DKW.

Its a three cylinder two stroke unit with independant ignition coils for all three cylinders

Nice car indra_slk.

Would be a good restoration project.

Who's gonna be that lucky man to give life to this resting car?

Dont let it deteriorate further, its good presently before it gets grounded.

Thats correct. It was indeed called a Auto Union.

Another interesting bit is the Auto Union 4 door saloon came with front suicide doors and the 2 door came with a pillarless normal doors.

Indra do let me know if you are looking for a restorer in Goa.

deutscheafrikar,

Were you at the event? How come I don't see any VWs? Could you also share some pics of the bikes and other cars? Thanks.
