Carriage German mayor ordered originally turned up (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hansom

Here is my best explanation:

'carriage' is the definition.

(hansom is a kind of carriage)

'german mayor ordered originally turned up' is the subsidiary indication.

'german' becomes 'hans' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'originally' suggests taking the first letters.

'turned up' shows that the letters should be reversed in order.

The initial letters of 'mayor ordered' is 'mo'.

'mo' back-to-front is 'om'.

'hans'+'om'='hansom'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for hansom that I've seen before include "transport from the old days", "One-horse cab", "Horse-drawn cab", "Type of cab", "Two-wheeled horse-drawn covered carriage", "Old horse cab sounds attractive", "Transport", "Two-wheeled one-horse carriage", "Cab" and "Carriage".)
