Are you looking for something special, something very old that drives great at the same time? A classic car that has the potential to win competitions and is yet reasonably affordable in terms of purchase and maintenance? A car that increases in value annually?
In that case, consider this DKW:

DKW F8 Favorit Luxus Sedan from construction year 1939. In a great mobile shape, looks really good. The name Favorit Luxus Sedan is listed in the automobile documents but this car is better known as the DKW F8. There is a lot of information to be found on the Internet concerning the F8, see Wikipedia and the DKW F8 Clubs for example.

This car has a Swedish de-registered registration and EU export documents so it is easy for the new owner to register the car within the EU.
It has a 20 HP strong engine with 700 cc that starts well, barely emits smoke and has a nice sound. This DKW has a 3-speed manual gearbox that shifts properly, and is currently 79 years old (!!!).
The car shows minimal traces of wear and is in an excellent driving condition. The former owner rarely used the car in recent years, so it is now being sold.
Odometer reading: 33,555 km
The car drives well, a nice time capsule in its purest form!

Some things need to be considered: the paint has a lot of patina, naturally no longer original, it has scratches but is very acceptable, modern H4 headlights have been installed, the old ones will be included.

A lot of positive things can be said about this car!
+ Nice paintwork, lots of patina, little damage, see photos.
+ The leather parts like roof and door cladding were all renewed one 1 ago.
+ The wooden construction of the car is in a fine condition, very strong!
+ Engine, transmission and brakes work well. This car offers a great driving experience and is easy to control.
+ Everything works!
+ Very nice interior.
+ Nice details like the popular old-fashioned speedometer and the old-fashioned radiator grille, the foldout blinkers, the particular type of gear knob, freewheel, suicide doors... etc.
+ A real eye-catcher!
+ A lot of parts will be included!
+ And much more!

The seller can organise transport of the car within the EU at a relatively affordable price.

The car is located in Hengevelde, the Netherlands.
