Is that the same Kibri that now does HO scale plastic buildings and trucks?

Probably yes. But I'm not sure.

Here is the Kibri - looks a little rough! http://www.autojauneparis.com/en/fiche.php?numero=13607
 



This is the car that could be Mahle or Kibri. This is not for sure.


Ups where is all my written copy?

Ok! After one year and 11 month I could find out a lot about the Möbius. Now I have a really big collection of Möbius cars (ca. 20). And it seems there is another manufacturer wich produced similar cars like Möbius. One Mercedes W25 here in this thread I named a Möbius. But it isn't.


More about this in my new blog article with a lot of pictures (in German – the copy, not the pictures ).


And here is the Google translated version in English.


The translation is really terrible. But it is too much for me to translate. Sorry!

I have been watching the TdF recap at night in the US, so I will save this article for tonight also.  Off to work now (it's 06:00 here).  Thanks for the post, pixmix - it's a great story and what detective work you did!

5 month ago I said there could be another manufacturer who made similar cars like Möbius. Now I must say, all cars discussed were made by Möbius. So I deleted the first article and wrote a totally new one. With more pictures and old ads. But the story is complicated.
