Looks like the same car with questionable body mods including cut up arches , appeared not to have engine at that time ? Wonder whats in it now !

Wacky but interesting

The front headlights remind of a Datsun 280Z

funny how the second link, after saying the car is based on a "german DKW 4 door sedan" (if the project really dates back to 1949, most likely a 2-door), is surprised to see a transverse leaf spring suspension above the gearbox, which was the defining characteristic of almost all FWD DKWs...

with all that weight on the front (in front of the axle even?) and such a light car, that must drive like a turd?
Are there cement bags in the back?
