The travel to the factory was 1961. I wasn't alive in 1952, having been born in 1956.

Thank you! James

As an aside, I think the ONLY person I ever heard my father speak poorly of was Max Hoffmann. He would have preferred to die than order a car through Hoffmann (and, yes, I know he changed his name to Hoffman).. Speaking with certain insiders, I find that my father's opinion was not unfounded. But that is history. The victors get to write it.

I'd rather drive a plastic junker than be a prig.

Wood garnish rails (door caps as you call them) are a split window only trait, not bent window.
