Bodied by Rometsch, perhaps on a VW frame but with a Porsche engine

This absolutely unique and very interesting ROMETSCH-built race car has recently been found and unearthed in Munich, Germany

Not only is this a sensational "barn find", but it also means history as we know it regarding the Berlin based coachbuilder Rometsch Karosserie has to be rewritten. There has previously been no history of race cars coming out of this coachbuilder, which mainly focused on upper-class classy design-cars. Now there is a car with both paperwork and build-pictures to prove it. Rometsch built race cars! There will be more published on this part of the history over at http://www.rometschregistry.orgin some time.

At some time it was made more streetworthy, converted from single seat, to double seat and gained a Speedster-like windshield. It was licensed and used on the road up until the mid sixties, and has been in hiding since then.

It was built during 1952-53 at Rometsch, based on a VW-Beetle floorpan with Porsche brakes, wheels and engine. The designer is so far unknown. Steel base-structure with aluminium skin - like Rometsch knew how to do it.

A special and unique car, that will be on display at PROTOTYP museum in Hamburg soon.

The car with number 54 looks a bit different...
Is it the same car?

The shorter Car With number 54 is a 1953 Glockler Spyder... not the 1954 Rometsch spyder...

Both cars have been built for a little group called "Renngemeinschaft Berlin". This was a sort of race team, but with common ownership and shared driving.
Their cars were painted silver with a wide maroon-colored stripe sideways accross the car behind the front wheels. A paint scheme that the Renngemeinschaft Berlin used on all their cars.
The Rometch was raced extensively in 54 and 55 and has been found on participant lists at Nurburgring and other known tracks.

The very progressive "Renngemeinschaft Berlin"-team raced the 53 season in two Glockler Porsche Spyders.
In the picture below one can see the team driver Bernhard Cappenberg at the wheel of one of the Glockler cars. It has the team colors - silver car with dark red / marroon stripe crosswise behind the front wheels. Also notice the two badges - one team-badge with "Renngemeinschaft Berlin" and the German auto club badge - AvD. Both the stripe and the two badges can also be seen on the Rometsch Porsche Spyder.

Mr Cappenberg is also the man behind the design of the Rometsch Porsche Spyder - the sketches from which the panel beaters at Rometsch formed the body was from the hand of this skilled race driver.

I did not look close enough before posting...
