Carroceria Vert, Gerona, Spain
T44 Roadster #44725 in the style of a T55. The body was built later than the car (but before 1967), in Spain by "Carroceria Vert". However, there seems to be no info on this "Carroceria Vert".

"Carrocerias Vert" was founded early last century by the family Vert-Planas near Girona in Catalonia, and devoted to horse carriages to turn soon afterwards, as most of those artisans, to the new horseless carriages. Vert specialized basically on lorries, buses and commercial vehicles. During starved period following the Spanish civil war, Vert and others carrossiers were asked to turn many former exclusive cars such Hispano-Suiza, Delahaye or Bugatti, into humble transport vans and pick-ups. Later on, some of those aristocrat chassis were fitted with apropiate special bodies again.

There is a book about "Carrocerías Vert" written in Spanish by J. Vert Planas.
