Having read through some of the old posts and done a few searches I have a few questions regarding the present ownership of some of the historic Auto Union & Mercedes Benz Grand Prix cars.

The ex. Seaman W154 Mercedes Grand Prix car # 189437/7 that was originally Joska Roman in Romania, latterly with Joel Finn, Hans Thulin and finally sold, but does anyone know where or whom would currently have it ??, I have read the USA (NOT the Collier col. theirs is #15) and also Germany.

The ex. Carraciola/ Brauhitsch/ Lang W154 #189439/9 that was postwar the DON LEE Special and lastly with Neil Corner and dissapeared in the 1990's, what happened to this ??

The ex. Fangio W196 #0006/54, ex. National Motor Museum/ Setton/ Loh Collection , is this in the Middle east ??

And lastly the ex. Corner Auto Union D-Type, numbers unknown, Germany ??, Korea ??, somewhere else ??

Any ideas, information would be welcome, I also have some information on other cars if anyone wants.

Cheers
Tim

Lee Kun-hee of Samsung owned the Auto-Union for many years, supposedly problems with importing it into Korea meant it stayed in a Frankfurt warehouse for many years with some of his other cars (Ferrari GTO etc).
Apparently he sold the Auto Union for 5.5 million euros in 2007 - which is when he sold the GTO and Bugatti 35B etc.
