HANSA 1700

2-door saloon, cabriolet.

Same pleasant styling as the 1100, but with an extra 7ins of wheelbase to accommodate the extra pair of cylinders. Gravity feed on early cars, mechanical pumps later. 50bhp sports 2-seater not sold here. Nor, for that matter, was the twin-carburettor 2000 with Borgward badges which replaced the 1700 for 1939.
