:think: Interesting whether such "schiebedach" (if this can be described by this word?), can make it a 311/8, or were 311/8(/108) looked only like this, : /vehicle_249038-Wartburg-1000-311-108-1962.html

Germans often uses the term "Schiebedach" in a wrong meaning (if you are nitpicking with the language). "Schiebedach" exactly means a sliding-roof, which you are handling by shoving by hand it open and back. So the construction of sliding-roofs, used by Peugeot in the 60ies, are correctly named "Schiebedach".

The sliding roofs of German made cars (West German cars, I don't know the Wartburg-construction) were handled by a winder ("Kurbel"), so correctly said, they are a "Kurbeldach" and not a "Schiebedach". But the term "Schiebedach" is much more common and still in use.

Also the cloth-version of sliding roofs, as common in the 50ies and since a few years again at the VW Polo 6N and the Renault Twingo for example, are "Schiebedächer" in the correct meaning - but 100% correct only, when they were used by hand.

Since the 60ies we are using the term "Stahlschiebedach" or "Stahlkurbeldach" ("SSD" or "SKD" in advertises) to seperate the steel-sliding-roofs from the cloth-sliding-roofs (and the glass-sliding-roofs, which came up in the 80ies). "ESD" means an electric sliding roof - but this can be made from steel, cloth or glass.

Everything plausible now? ;)

Thank's for the explanation, so with this pic we won't know what it is and have to wait for some Wartburg expert.

Edit: 1960+ - lettering at the hood.
