Robert Nellemann's eponymous first car was one of the first Danish 'Midget' cars to be built and the first to fit into the eventual 500cc F3 regulations. Later, the Silver Bird, of 1949 was the second special to be raced by Robert, but it was only this car that carried the name of Silver Bird, due to its polished aluminium bodywork. Robert gave up building cars after the Silver Bird to concentrate on driving, including a Cooper Mk XII
