One of a handful of known examples of the "EMW" 327 Cabriolet,
produced in the early postwar era by the Eisenach Motoren-Werke,
which took over BMW's largest manufacturing plant after if fell to
East Germany in 1945. EMW simply picked up where BMW left off,
producing vehicles that were virtually identical in design and
specification, built with all the same tooling as the pre-war
machines. Eventually BMW cried foul and some concessions were made
to differentiate the two marques. While EMW found moderate success
for the period, the factory was eventually nationalized and handed
over to Wartburg. This rare 327 Cabriolet is undoubtedly one of the
prettiest EMW models of all, and is virtually indistinguishable
from its Western counterpart. This example benefits from an
extensive, high-quality restoration, documented with hundreds of
photos, and is beautifully presented in two-tone blue over blue
leather trim. It is powered by post-war BS1-specification Bristol
2-liter six, believed to be delivered to Wacky Arnolt in the 1950s.
A wonderful example from this esoteric marque, and a fabulous
machine for driving events or concours. This vehicle just arrived,
and a full description is coming soon. Please contact Hyman Ltd for
