A few weeks ago, a discussion started her about a "unknown" Dannenhauer & Stauss which was uppolstered next Etiennes Hebmüller. Today, the finished car was presented at the Techno Classica Exibition in Essen. It it the old car, which was completely destroyed by an accident four years ago. Now it is back to life and everybody can see it until next sunday at the world famous exibition.

Fantastic!

when I first looked at the photo... the point where the front bumper meets the body looked almost like a chrome overrider bar above the bumper. If you imagine that reflection as an overrider bar that touches the back of the two bumperettes

interesting how now... 50+ years later... VW is putting these coachbuilts in the museum...
and the signage says... "Volkswagen Dannenhauer and Stauss"... or "Volkswagen Rometsch Beeskow".
Contrast this to back in the early 1950's... when Volkswagen was doing everything it could to STOP
the production of these cars... by working with the German Govt. to forbid the export of them... not supplying parts,
etc.

For those who can't read German (myself included), here's a translation of the newspaper article (thanks to my partner Jean for this! BigGrin ). It looks like these two were very lucky to escape from the accident with their lives:-

Head of Wolfsburg Museum seriously injured at rally

Collision with a valuable VW vintage cabrio

Horst Beilharz (62), head of the Wolfsburg VW museum, has sustained a serious injury at a vintage rally in the Austrian town of Voralberg.

WOLFSBURG. “I must have had a guardian angel watching over me”, said a heavily-bandaged Horst Beilharz, speaking from his hospital bed in the town of Feldkirch. Despite a broken left hip, a shattered kneecap, deep stitches in his face and two missing teeth, Beilharz remains optimistic: “I think I’ll be fit to go back to Wolfsburg in around ten days in a wheelchair”. With a new hip…

Together with his co-driver, Lufthansa boss Uwe Mueller (46), Beilharz was taking part in the Silvretta Classic rally. He was driving a 1951 Dannenhauer & Stauss cabriolet, borrowed for the occasion from the Wolfsburg museum.

The accident occurred in the village of Schnepfau, when the driver of a Ford Transit failed to give way to the rally duo and Beilharz, at the wheel of the rare vintage vehicle, collided head on with the delivery van. The Transit driver escaped unhurt but Beilharz and Mueller were rushed to hospital by helicopter. The co-driver came off even worse. Beilharz explains, "He will suffer from the broken bones he sustained for some time to come".

The D & S was a complete write-off. The museum head stated: “We aim to restore this rare vehicle, one of just twelve examples of its kind”. But not for a rally…


The photo captions read:-

Complete write-off: The Dannenhauer & Stauss after the accident in Voralberg.

and

Before: the cabrio in the museum.

Interesting read - would have taken me hours to get it all typed into Google Translate, thanks (and especially Jean too) for taking the time and trouble!

I wonder how Google or any of the online translators would've translated it- sometimes they can be quite amusing to read! Laugh
