Here are some pictures of GTA (613600) that I have now owned for a few years. It has extensive racing history and documentation from Europe. Pictures are: as prepared by Hahn, when raced and undergoing restoration. Interesting to note that the sliding block rear suspension was removed to race in its class; the differential housing with special mounting studs remains, but the set up was converted to solid aluminum Tbar.

Is this an ex-Helmut Haehn car? Pictures from Hockenheim etc.? Possibly even the car that was road tested by a German magazine in the late 60's.

Also if it was raced in Historic in Europe, the sliding block would have been removed, as the latter was not homologated for '65.

I will scan and post more restoration pictures in a few days. Yes this GTA was raced by Ha:hn in the 60's and 70's. It is also the car featured in AutoMotor und Sport in '68.

I remember seeing this car at Haehn's shop many times together with a whole bunch of other GTA's. I used to drop by there frequently, as I used to live close by. Helmut Haehn is still around but there's only one GTA left at the shop now - just saw it again this summer.

BTW, somewhere I have an English translation of the German road test that I did for a local club newsletter some 20 years ago, if you need it - it is actually one of the better road tests written about a GTA. I believe there was a second road test of a Haehn GTA in Auto Motor Sport as well, but I am not sure if it was the same car.
