I recently was shown a copy of the 1956 Palm Springs Road Races and Concours brochure. It features an advertisement for Jack Berman's "British Motor Car Company" on Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills California.

The ad describes that the dealer sells Denzel and Rometsch cars.... and features photos of a Denzel and a Beeskow. The Beeskow photo is of MY CAR! I am certain of it because of a few odd details.

When I was restoring the car... I found a small dashboard "Entrants badge" from this same Palm Springs Concours inside the bottom of one of the doors so it is great to get a copy of the brochure.

I am one step closer to knowing the original owner of my car... The hunt continues.

Very cool!! Any chance of a pic? :D

Bit of an odd name for a company? Rometsch & Denzel are not the most 'British' cars I can think of :lol:

I will shortly get a copy of the entire brochure... but here is a photo of the ad. Elsewhere in this brochure it shows that my car was entered in both the concours and in the roadrace! What idiot would roadrace a Beeskow!

Hello Andreas,
the papers from Beeskow54 came from our Rometsch archiv. For some cars we have all documents.

Well,that`s simply FANTASTIC,Christian !
That someone keeps that order for such a long time and then it would help to make the history of a restored car complete....GREAT !

BUT..:
why does this never happen to me ? Maybe you can check " a little bit " in your archive and may find out, what elephants and Rometsches have in common ? :lol: :wink: ..the body number is well known,so,-Hope is the last thing to die...

ciao
