An expensive and luxurious Maybach converted into a company car for a sharpener - Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim

In the difficult period after WW II, the once proud and imposing car was converted into a mobile saw vehicle in order for the owner to earn a living. The luxury car thus “abused” as a utility vehicle is a 1935 Maybach DSH of which only 50 units were built. The original price of the car was an exorbitant 25,000 Reichsmark.

 Until 1986, it was owned by Mr. Georg Ewald, who worked with the wood saw vehicle till his old age. He ordered in his last will, by which he donated the Maybach saw to the Museum, that it should remain and be exhibited in unrestored condition.

  1. I have seen a Maybach up close. The fenders are as thick as a griswold skillet. The details and quality of build on these cars is amazing.
