In fact to early 60's these Warburgs weren't officially called "311" anywhere IMO. I thought we have such deal ;), that we add the 311 as model name (since we do not use AWE as brand), but if not, then all other have to be renamed or just this one to "Wartburg 311 Kombi".

I just checked for what they sold as in Sweden at the time, and there┤s no mention of 311. Real early cars were advertised in Sweden as IFA brand and Wartburg modelname. But I think that was dropped very early.

But if 311 was just a chassiscode at that point it should be kept that way.

Then we need to change all of them, as indeed in 1950's brochures, I saw, I do not remember anything about 311 name. Now we need to find the brand or change model name of sedans to "limousine" etc. (different name for different markets perhaps).
Edit - confirmation:

The first "model name" was 1000 used since 1962.
Sometimes it is possible to meet badge 312 though: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3575/3463047884_a4fc676fb8.jpg Whcih seems was used as model name on some markets - in GB for example: Link to "www.wartburg.sk"

Here┤s how the very earliest cars were advertised in Sweden: /vehicle_17544-Wartburg-311-311-0-1956.html

That┤s probably most to show a connection to the well known IFA since it was rapidly dropped, however they were commonly referred as IFA-Wartburgs long after that. We also had the IFA Zwickau P70 at the sime time, but that one was dropped entirely due to poor sales.

Anyway, I suppose that they sold as Wartburg make on most markets and modelnames might have changed a bit depending on markets like it did for Volkswagen in this period. But I guess we could use original designation "Limousine" etc. until we find correct ones.

Ok, so what do you want to set in case of this car from "Malm÷"? Just Wartburg or Swedish term for limousine?

Edit: Ok all of them have been renamed. Perhaps it still can be more exact, but I believe, we are closer now to correct naming convention. Like it was already mentioned, on some markets the 311/312 was used as model name, although I think it was after 1962 (so or 1000 or 311/312 - matter of market) it seems in such Poland for example, it was available even under both names - matter of "season" I bet.

Limousine would be fine for early ones in Sweden, I only have yearbooks availabe and they are not always reliable. But it seems they used original designations 56-58. From 59 models they have adapted them a little to swedish: Standard Sedan or Lyx Sedan.
