Gosa-built Y wagon - note the roofline
Are you sure, this one is GOSA-built?
I don't think so.
I'd rather think, it's one of those imported from Poland.

I think yes, it is Gosa - look at the slope of the roof over the door/entry vestibule. It *may* just be the angle of the photo, though... but as far as I know, OSE had rather more Gosa cars than Polish ones. I think it's a sister to the ex-JZ B 20-80 cars.

The roof lines of Gosa-built and Polish cars are similar enough so that they can easily be confused with each other on photos.

But have a look at the windows. The window's corners are rounded with an extremely tight radius. That's Polish and Romanian style—but actually not Gosa.

And look at the lower edges of the car body's ends. Gosa belongs to those manufacturers which make them on the same height like the lower edges of the car body's middle section. At this car they are on the same height like the door's lower edge. That's Polish and German style—but absolutely not Gosa.

Good points.

I just did some more closer looking, and I think also the windows immediately next to the doors are wider on this car than on Gosa cars.

So, I agree now - not Gosa!
