1949 BMW Veritas Cabriolet
I am happy to be the new internet outreach person for a small museum in Glenview, IL which has in its collection a very rare (BMW) built 1949 Veritas Cabriolet 2 door conv. its powered by the BMW 328 and the body was built by Spohn Coachworks. Parked since 1971 and covered in dust, this one-of-a-kind custom built German sportscar was ordered for the 1950's TV show "Boston Blacky". We are now preparing to dig the Veritas out of the dark storage area and may be selling the car to the BMW Mobile Tradition museum . Happy to email you guys some photo's taken on October-16th 2004. The back design was taken from the German Jet fighter Messerschimtt, and later stolen by GM for its 1950 X-8 project car Le Saber.
Spohn Coachworks also buit custom bodies for Caddilac in the 50's.
