The french aviator M.Barbou designed this body on a Mercedes 28/95 PS chassis in 1921for himself. I couldn't find out who has built the car for him. The chassis he bought in Zürich/Switzerland, probably it was a swiss coachbuilder.

My source tells it was built upon a 16/45PS Mercedes chassis by the Progreß-Werke Zürich and sold to the aviator Pierre Barbou.

It was a four seater car, the interior was clad with Gobelin tapestry, the seats with leather.
