The BMW Condor mystery

The BMW Condor mystery
From Samos over to Sylt – another European island, but slightly further up north. Reader Andre van de Loo came across a photograph that was taken on the German isle and would like to learn a bit more about the car that’s on it. Andre: “Although the car is no longer a mystery - it is a (the? - ed.) 1958 BMW Condor. But its background is. Someone send me the photo of this mystery car in Wenningstedt on the German Island of Sylt (below) and I managed to find a matching front-end view of the same car (above). However, I have no background information on who built this car, or where it was built. I would appreciate any information your readers can supply on this car.”

To be honest we didn’t know the BMW Condor ourselves and are now intrigued by it, too. Was it a coachbuilder of fame who created this rather outrageous car? Spohn? Rometsch? Autenrieth? Or was it a handyman who built it in his private garage? And what would be the base of it? 500-series, or perhaps even pre-war? The registration ‘BI’ is from Bielefeld in North-Rhine-Westphalia, but that didn’t bring us any further…
