Auction company photos of the '49 Veritas. This car would have been originally bodied by Spohn in 1949 in the livery of other '49 Veritas. The owner would have then taken it back to Spohn approximately 1952 for custom coachbuilding to include new design elements of the Le Sabre tail as seen at the 1951 Munich auto show as well as headlight and grille options the owner chose from the Spohn sketch books.

In response to my inquiry regarding Veritas autos and how many may have been bodied by Spohn, I received the following generous post from Markus Neugebauer:
____________

Around 1949/50 Veritas had made a contract with Spohn to deliver the "standard" bodies for their new "production" models, but Veritas went bancrupt before that did really start running. Before this Spohn had also been one supplier for bodies for the older BMW-derivated models, but only among others like Autenrieth or Hebmüller. There were even agreements with Saoutchik to build bodies on Veritas chassis, probably for the French market.

Later, when Loof started over again at the Nürburgring he contiuned also with Spohn, but some single models (in particular for competition) seem also to have received Rappold bodies or were built by Veritas themselves.

To build the Dyna-Vertas, which was more or less a Panhard in disguise, Veritas had founded a new company and made a contract with Baur to deliver all bodies. In fact these cars were mechanically no Veritas at all. But some of the Dyna chassis were used as platforms for sports prototypes and one of them has a special Drews body.

You see, quite a lot coachwork companies involved. Problem for them was, until before the war it was quite usual for customers in Germany to buy a chassis only and then order a body at a coachwork company. After the war models were standardized and the bodies became an integral part of the car, so they could not be replaced easily. The coachwork companies had to look desperately for new customers and were happy to make contracts with smaller marques like Veritas.

But as I said most of these bodies had been "standard", I think they were ordered by Veritas, but not directly from the customers. I do not know of any other "special" bodies than the one recently sold at the auction. Also this seems to have been a standard model initially and then converted later by Spohn by adding some fins and chrome.

Hope the answer helps

Regards

1953 Veritas RS coupe by Spohn

While the original livery on this chassis was credited to Spohn (probable), further research claims this is a re-body in 1964 by the Meisterschule Kaiserslautern for an American owner at that time.
