Jules, now I'm worried I do not have the vin for my dad's car. The Toronto delivery made NO sense. Germany to Montreal does NOT pass by Toronto. Besides, Toronto was a hell hole in 1952. The city was torn apart getting its first subway system.

What other info do you have? My contact said the aluminum doors etc., were listed. (EDITED Offensive language EDITED) This has been like the damn Maltese Falcon.

Yes, Eric's owner's manual is probably the Dec 1952 English version. There should be a date on the bottom right of page 2.

James, well done! Correct on English version. Germany version is October 1952.

Want to see the rare white brochure with actual photos not prints?

There is also a version similar to the october 52 manual with a split window car on the first page but it is not dated it fall between the early 2 gauge dash manual and the october 52 manual.

Eric,
This is my wife's 52 that she bought in the early 70's . i would love to have a scanned PDF of the English manuel. It would be a real addition to our documentation. Our car ahd been abused by owners and the environment before it came into our protection.
Thanks so much for your help.
Mark

Mark, my wife does the scanning. Our scanner is ancient and VERY slow. Would good photos be enough? She is a professional photographer. Besides, it would be free of course. However, according the "EXPERTS" around here these are selling in every dime store in the world. See above.

Please tell me about the color. Really unusual. PLEASE, more photos of the car. To see my dad's, go here: http://quantumrun356.com/

What vin number is yours?
