Hammer Autos

The double-deck car transporter, catalog number 1472, was loaded with plastic cars from the Hammer company from Lüdenscheid in the Sauerland region.

These cars had different prototypes, which again were made in a variety of colors. This has resulted in a separate collection area, which I think belongs to Fleischmann.

The Hammer cars that the Fleischmannwagen were loaded with mostly had white roofs and dark gray wheels. The roofs can be shiny or marbled.

There are also models with white and light gray wheels. The roofs can also be colored, like the BMW 507 model in lemon yellow with a red roof. This is glued to a 1425 from 1960.

A very good and comprehensive treatise on Hammer Autos can be found here:  Slide Player
