The car was delivered on February 16, 1962 to a Hamburg businessman who, according to the exemplary customer service booklet, drove it around 60,000 km over the next ten years. After that, the written documentation goes back to 2003 and 97,000 km, although it is obvious that this is actually 197,000 km. During this time, according to oral tradition, the car was always serviced in one and the same renowned specialist workshop in Hamburg, but unfortunately no evidence is available from this time. According to the order and photo documentation, the engine was overhauled in 2003 and has been driven 8,500 km since then.
The interior is very well preserved, seats were reupholstered about 20 years ago. Carpets were faithfully replaced at least 20 years ago, as was the hood. The sky has some holes, probably from moths.
The body appears to be largely original and, as far as can be seen, free of accidents. The right sill and the jack holder were welded, and a metal strip was replaced on the trunk floor in the battery area. Both doors were processed on the lower edges, which can be seen by layer thicknesses of 0.6 to 2.0 mm in the lower quarter of the doors and up to 3.0 mm in the lower corners. The rest of the car shows layer thicknesses between 0.25 and 0.4 mm. The paint is certainly not perfect, but it is good and has a nice patina like the rest of the car.
Overall, a great driving car with good technology and a nice story.
