This would make a nice family car for the holidays!

Gallery: http://www.coachbuild.com/index.php?opt ... emId=35186

The 3/4 picture below shows a Rometsch Taxi and the other one (side view) was built by Messerschmitt.
Does any of you know how many of both the Rometsch and the Messerschmitt were built?

Hello to You,

up-to-date I can only see the gallery-pics of the Rometsch-sedan, not the two other separate ones - so I only answer for the VW first:

VW-Rometsch I-1200T(axi)/1951>57

The 4dr-sedans are planed for Berlin-Taxi-use. They have taken VW I-1200E(xport)-2dr-sedans/1951> (NewPrice-5.150;--DM/31.000;--€ ; 4,07x1,54x1,50m ; 730kg) and added 18cm around the b-pillar. For the weight ist was 25kg more, for the price additional 2.000;--DM (= 12.000;--€/2009) more. So till 1953 15 4dr-sedans are built-up from new with VW-Wolfsburg-help. Then they are stopping it - for prefering selling the VW-II-bus as taxi-version. From now, till 1957 only used VW-I-Export have becoming 2dr>4dr-version. This are in most the 25cm-stretched-ones. In total there are created 50 cars between 1951 and 1957, maybe half/half 18/25cm-more-lenght ...,

... with greetings, FrankWo.
