I think this is not Gläser, but Horch Karosserie Werke. It was an attempt to get into the market jealously guarded by Mercedes-Benz to have the Reichskanzlei as a customer...

The Horch book describes it as a Gläser body. Many Gläser bodies for Horch were made in order of the Horch-Werke, designed by Horch.

Here's a list of the coachbuilder who built the "serial" bodies (in all 356 Horch 951A were built 1937-40) for the Horch 951A in order of Horch/Auto Union:

Pullmann-Limousine: Horchwerke
Pullmann-Cabriolet: Gläser
Sedan-Cabriolet: Baur, Gläser, Erdmann & Rossi
Phaeton: Gläser
Transformations-Cabriolet: Gläser

and here a list who built Horch Phaetons in order of Horch/Auto Union:

Quite possibly true that this is an example of a integrated workflow. In this case it is obvious to me that the design has been very much in the hands of Auto Union AG in Chemnitz, with the execution of the job being sourced to Gläser. This would be the usual way to deal with small series of 'works' bodies anyway, but in this case it was a true one-off. Whereas Mercedes-Benz of course had a competent coachbuilding unit in house (Sindelfingen), this may not have been true for Auto Union.

When Horch became part of the Auto Union, the Horch body works has to built more and more bodies for DKW and Audi, so they had never the capacities to built all the Horch body types.
