    Car Identification

    Is there anyone able to identify the red car that is in the background? This is a still from the 1963 film Charade. It looks so familiar but I just can't think of what it is... The curved rear glass is amazing

    I've posted this elsewhere as well, I will be sure to post the final verdict if no one here knows

    Not a bad suggestion, but it looks too small

    Ladies and gentlemen, it would appear as though it is an NSU or Neckar 500. I never knew about this partnership!
