> The Morris Minor "Woody" or "Estate" only vaguely resembles the DKW in question.  In fact, so does my A6Q Avant.  However, the Morris is RWD, the front is completely different, and the rear doors are in the "French door" style, swinging on a vertical axis.  The DKW is FWD, likely to be a 3 cylinder 2-stroke, and had rear doors like an old Ford.
