Hi, Igor,
I have asked my books - they answered:
The car(s) were built for the British market by 'Swift of Coventry' and offered by Lancaster 1913>14 as Gladiator model 12 or 14.

Best wishes to You and greetings from me and Germany, Yours, Frank ;) .

Dear Frank, many thanks - you are a treasure trove of encyclopedic knowledge!
'Swift of Coventry' - it's CB, yes?

In first Swift was a British trade-mark with own car-lines (1904>31). The drawing/planing is Gladiator, the building is Swift-done, finished with the Gladiator -label.

Yours, Frank.

What car is that? A 7-Liter-Maybach I do not believe, but the vehicle is too small.

I've found this old Bmw in a barn in NY. It looks like it might be an Autenrieth car, but I'm not sure. It's in rough shape, but I think its something special. What do you guys think??

Hello to You,

are You shure, it must be a BMW, only for the front-badge? How about the engine, what size? I have no special-made car like this with my books.
For me it looks similar to a in GDR private rebuilt Wartburg 300HT/1965/66:

Merry Christmas and Happy new year to all!
One clarifying question.
On the photos - 1933 Mercedes-Benz SSK "Count Trossi", bodied by Willy White (England) - as decriebed in many sources (incl. Wiki).
Image
But I never seen historical photo of this car. Is it fake?
Is this car described in the Mercedes books?

It could be an order for an one-off 'Veritas-Spohn Nürburgring-2000 K-(19)51' on short chassis. The dashbord looks similar to BMW E541-501. The engine should be a BMW-328- one.
