Due to the grille, I first thought of Adler Trumpf Junior Sport, but these had a different rear end.

Dear Abd, find proof, please. Don't guess. :sun:

Adlers from 30s had very characteristic radiator cowling (grill) always.
That's why you can simply recognize even Adler-racer:

The car shown here has a (much more) modern windscreen.

It's some special sort of oldtimer.

Historic storms leaved it on communist country.
Poor oils, lack of spare parts, careless drivers and rust drove it to the edge of technical death.
Somebody found it somewhere (in barm, deep shrubbery, behind woody latrine), had mercy, bought and tried to resurrect. ;)
He grasped at straws fixing it with modern or casual parts.
Done some (worse or better) steel "sculpture" with weldor and hammer.

Fine Polish sample (these sort of car) is 1938 FIAT Topolino, famous "Ugly Julie" ;)
http://www.ampir-autostarocie.pl/pliki/topolino.html
Own by Mr Grzegorz Jędraszczak, a man who know well how to restore & keep oldtimers in original condition.
He bought Julie as joke and the victim of past decades.
Previous owner customized Julie with Polski FIAT 125p 1500 engine and many other odd elements.
Today Julie has a sticker "This is NOT a classic!"

This history of a car was not uncommon. Finally this or a similar destiny happened to all pre-war cars, which had existed behind the Iron Wall ("behind" from the Western view), and some goes for many post-war Western cars there, too.

And in the West it was not too different. Also in West Germany the scene of classic car-freaks started to have visible existence in the 70ies. Before that there were only some single freaks -about whom many other people have loughed about their strange hobby- Still in the early 70ies old cars, also from pre-war-times were just seen as worthless junk and many of them were scrapped.

Even today there were 30-40 years-old cars wrecked and crushed (o.k., most of them were rotten wrecks for parts). What was this car in 1973, when this TV Series was made?

Too all pre-war cars not necessary. It was (and is) a matter of the owner, his skills and will. You can rebuilt a body even without orignal parts, it will looks worse - sure, but not like a joke. It seems simply noone was interested in exact (as exact as it was possible back then) reconstruction of this vehicle.

Perhaps it was restored specially for the series and there wasn't enough time to find the right parts.

I'd say none of the above, and go for an Aero (30?) judging by the shape of the wings. Modified nose and windscreen. Windscreen possibly Skoda 1000 MB?
