Oh of course, because he's Andy Carter  ::) ...god I feel stupid
As a matter of fact I have only passed by the second link a couple of times and never actually gone in-depth. It contains some great and unique photos, I especially enjoyed the labeled dashboard from Kleinwagenmuseum, it a shame that the photo quality is so poor. All the chassis photos were also a buzz  :D

The comments that come up on the site say it's an engine mount from a Mercedes 190SL. As far as I can tell, the flat end with two holes bolts to the centre of the main chassis with the pointy end pointing downwards. The rear wheels are mounted on a trailing arm that runs behind, and pivots at the rear of the chassis. Another arm runs toward the front of the car linked directly to the trailing arms and this acts on the pointy end of the engine mount. So when the rear wheels move down it gets squashed and when they move up it stretches.

Google probably already told you... if not here are some mopetta pics:

good luck with your project! By the way, driving the mopetta is not as exciting as looking at it.

forgive me for deviating please but whilst on my Bruetsch suspension querie - any thoughts could this be used as a replacement for the missing suspension units 2 back 2 front - and which way up ? costing looks awful an american site has them at over $ 200 each !!  ( the car featured is Bruetsch Zweg Zweisitzer probably the only surviving one )

Hi Richard
               Could you not use Mini ones with a suitable mount - these are available at £40 each - they may not look original but I'm sure they would do the job.
                                                                                                                                                                    Mike

oliver ! more questions than answers ! why did you buy it/them ?  for a Mopetta ? what diameter are they ? also could you possibly measure your Bruetsch badge when you get a chance ?  - thanks so much
