Does this ad seem a bit peculiar?

There's a typo in the year. It says 1937 but later in the ad it says 1973. Is that the thing to which you're referring?

Yep - seems that a big outfit like Hemmings would at least get the year right!

Besides, it's the pre-1950 Tatra design that interests me. Bling and gizmos be darned!

Kinda looks like it has some Citroën influence going on.

I'd much rather have a DS than this 73 Tatra. The DS was quite a car, even back in '55 -

At 70K you'd think they'd have refinished the coil bracket!

Working in a repair shop in Boston in 1957, a DS 19 came in for service. One spoke steering wheel, little button on the floorboard for a brake pedal,aeropneumatic suspension. As I remember from 63 years later, it had a hydraulic leak and I believe we found it and fixed it. No better riding car ever existed. Followed by the CX series and then - who knows. They always made quirky cars. In Paris, I rode in a traction avant taxi - one of those black ones, front wheel drive.
