Do you have any better photo showing the complete data plate?

I took these pics a couple years ago. It was up about 12' on a pallet rack.
I'll swing by and try to get a better pic.
Have you seen these before Brad ?
Thanks.

Here's the best I can do with a close up the data plate -- can't quite read the company name.

Martin,

No, I have not seen such a thing. But the data plate could tell a story if we could read it.

I can't read it all but it does say gearbox (Getriebe) on it.
I can see the word Gutbrod too which Google says were a small car manufacturer in Stuttgart.

Yep, it's factory. A friend in Denver owned one for years.
