Horch chassis codes & model numbers
Published 05/09/2016 @ 15:55:16, By robi
Hello, fellow imcdb-community,

for many users (myself included) vintage cars are rather difficult to identify and it's also not that easy to find the correct name.
A good example for these problems might be Horch vehicles, since there have been many model names (usually three digit numbers), while they are belonging to a certain family of cars. Additionaly, there were many different body styles available, and even more cars were completed by external coachbuilders.

The current situation looks like this: Many Horchs are listed either totally wrong (http://imcdb.org/vehicle_392212-Horch-930-V.html), or - in most cases - irregular. I suggest to create a standardized pattern for Horchs, which includes:

- Make (Horch, of course)
- Model Number (780, 830, 850 etc.) + Bodystyle (Sport Cabriolet, Pullman Limousine etc)
- Chassis Code (usually the number of the car's family)

In order to avoid a lot of comments on different pages, I will put the links where changes should be done here. Above each link will be the proposed changes. If the whole name has to be changed, I will put it there.

I will not include military "Einheits-PKW".
Listing the chassis codes will leave many vehicles as "unknown", because most current identifications are based more on speculations and guessing, therefore I will post all possible model numbers on each unknown page.

Horch chassis codes & model numbers
Published 14/10/2016 @ 13:23:05, By antp
Done, sorry for the long delay.

However for the "unidentified 830", I've just listed them as "Horch [830]"; if they can't be identified more acurately than being from the 830 family I suppose there is no much point listing them as unknown (like the Mercedes W114/115/116/etc. that often can only be identified only by their W-code)

Same for a few "maybe" that I think are better than way than as unknown.
