About Quiz #354: 1934-39 Hanomag Rekord (modified) Limousine
Not too many correct answers this time. Sorry, it is not an Aries, or a Humber or an Austin. Only two competitors came up to the right marque and model, and only one was completly correct. There were two nasty issues about this car: The rear end, modified in the 40s in order to get more space for extra-passengers (something very typical in the early postwar years) and the engine. As most dedicated classic car afficionados probably know, Hanomag was one of the pioneer brands in the use of Diesel engines, and the first "dieselized" model was the Rekord. Jury member Frans van Vrijaldenhoven explains in his answer that this fine piece of junk has to be a 1938/39 Hanomag Rekord Diesel, and yes he is very close... but not entirely. This concrete unit wears a regular petrol engine, as you can see in photo below. The top of the engine is similar to the Diesel model, but the position of the water pump and filters show enough differences to identify the engine as a 1.5 petrol engine, like this one.  This week's  is Valery Patrakov, who needed just two words to claim victory: " Hanomag Rekord" (check the ID-plate below). Congratulations Valery! And don't let us fool you with later modifications a next time...

I think the fact that the engine is fitted with a carburettor might rule out it being a diesel :-)
