These cabin rollers started in 1955 under the brand name 'Messerschmitt', but after Willy Messerschmitt turned back to airplane and helicopter development the name was changed to 'FMR' from 1957 on. The otherwise identical vehicles can be identified by their logo:

There were plenty of nicknames for these cabin rollers:
'Karo', short for 'Kabinenroller' (= cabin roller -- Karo also translates diamond as in playing cards (not as in jewellery ;) ))
'Schneewittchensarg' (= Snow White's coffin)
'Käseglocke' (= cheese cover)
or the one I like best:
'Menschen in Aspik' (= humans in aspic)

The reason for the plexiglass cover is to prevent claustrophobia.

Wir sollten trotzdem alle Messerschmitt und FMR als 'Messerschmitt' listen.

Die Fahrzeuge sind weltweit als Messerschmitt bekannt.
Messerschmitt und FMR kann man nicht aus allen perspektiven unterscheiden.
Die Umbenennung war politischer Zwang.
Verkaeufer und Besitzer sprachen weiterhin vom Messerschmitt.
Wer hier bei IMCdB unter Messerschmitt fuendig wird, wird warscheinlich nicht zusaetzlich auch noch unter FMR suchen.
