DKW Meisterklasse Van 1939. Is it called Kastenwagen?

The film plays in Nazi Germany, so it must be a DKW F8 instead of an IFA

"Ought to be", not "must be". It woudn't be the first time that an IFA has been used in a pre-war setting:

I know my english isn´t perfect. But at least they took off the IFA logo on the grille. http://mkmagazin.almanacwhf.ru/mkmagazin/venicle/ifa_dkv_f8_09.jpg

Here another picture, you can clearly see the difference in logo´s. The car in the film has the pointy DKW logo that sits higher on the grille than the square IFA logo.

In the first post-war-years, the only difference between the IFA and the pre-war DKW was the badge. The very first time they also took the DKW-logo with the four rings, but then it was forbidden, because West German Auto Union-company had the rights on the name.

btw.: the West German part of DKW-Auto Union -nowadays Audi- was founded by engineers and workers, who has beed refuged from the "Soviet Occupied Zone", the later GDR. Indeed, some of these guys went illegally back into the Soviet Zone to pick up construction-plans, tools and trademark-documents.

In the GDR it was also usual -even after the F8-production has ended- that new cars were built the IFA-parts on pre-war DKW-chassis (from crashed cars for example). Then often they also got new VIN-numbers, so today it's very difficult, also for hardcore-DKW-freaks, to be sure, which car is a IFA and which one a DKW.

@Misha, @Gag: so finally the logo on the grille means not much at a F8.

Model origin: DDR, not Germany.
