AUDI / GER




AUDI was founded in 1910. Here is the first enamelled emblem in the history of AUDI.
Before there was an oval brass emblem on the radiator with a small "a", so it says: audi.
The AUDI production stopped in 1939. The next Audi was the type 60 from 1965. It was a revised DKW F 102.
Dimensions8 cm x 6 cm
Year1920

Estimate
 



                      There is no makers make, but the backside of an original has to look like this.
