Car nr 515 is now finished.

This car was completely restored by the Grundmann's and is looking great.

This is the only remaining photo I have of my '59 Rometsch

I lost all my photos in a fire years ago.. My mother found this and sent it my way.

I believe this is in Santa Barbara at least it was in the early 90's

I still have the original 59 Okrasa 1300 motor with the glass fuel filter, Abarth exhaust and nameplate in storage in CA

Dennis

I live in Los Angeles and Im looking for an Okrasa engine for my 1957 Enzmann 506.

Just last week my Dutch friend Nico picked it up from the PO and Nico

is going to restore it. Please email me back if you would like to sell your Okrasa.

This is a very interesting picture. This cars has the curved body with fiat style taillight. Currently there are only two cars known that are like this (the 558 and the 566). I just spoke with Dennis on the phone and he can't remember any numbers, but he told me that the car was originally metallic blue and he painted it silver with black. I checked the remainders of the 558 and that car was originally all yellow. So Dennis his old car might be the 566 or it is a car not yet discovered. Now I have to find out if the 566 was bought in santa barbara.....

Fingers crossed it is not yet discovered Patrick. I hope it is a new one.

Good search and hunting.

I found out that the Fiat 1000 was produced from ?? '65 up to 2000 in India under the name "Premier Padmini". If those Fiat taillights are exactly the same as the Rometsch taillights, that makes India a wealthy source for Rometsch taillights... :smile:
