About Quiz #371: 1924/25 Stoewer D10


1924-1925 stoewer_d10_4-cylinder_470
Last week's quiz photo comes from the family album of Hugo Modderman. In the mid thirties his uncle Daan Modderman used to work in the 'horses heaven', the state run stud in Trakehnen, Germany. His brother came over to pick him up, yet as no rental cars were available they bought at little money this eleven year old Stoewer and drove it home to Holland after which the car was sent to the breakers yard... Who would have guessed back then what a unique motorcar got lost. 

Most sources say that there is not one survivor of this type of  sporty Stoewer, but most interesting was the remark by Craig Gillingham that possibly one may still be around in Australia. We would be most happy to learn about that car, as even photos of this car are rare as hen's teeth. Check forum-auto.com

Back to the quiz. Patrick Jacob, Poisson, Graeme Simpson, Craig Giullingham, jurymember Ariejan Bos, Fedor and Till Jauernig were all correct in pointing out Stoewer and most of them were also correct in the exact type. It was however Paul Hoepfl who came in with all the details. "This is a Stoewer D10 built in 1924-25. 100 units were produced. It had a bore of 83mm and a stroke of 120mm giving a capacity of 2597ccm and 60bhp at 3000 rpm. The car had a sporty reputation and of 121 total suriving Stoewer's not one single D10's exist today. The exception in the 4 cylinder D range was the D7 6 cylinder 11L 120 bhp aero engine."

Congratulations Paul! Please send us your mailaddress and size so we can send you the well deserved T-shirt! A new chance for everybody at PostWarClassic "Tough to Crack".
