The Hanomag Company

The Hannoversche Maschinenbau AG, or Hanomag as the company was named in 1904, started out in locomotive manufacturing in 1835 as one of the first in the business. Hanomag supported the development of mobility and motorization since in the long run with versatile products. Since 1905, trucks and commercial vehicles have been the main part of the production program, later followed by passenger cars, tractors, agricultural and construction machinery.

The Motorcar Offered

The charming little Hanomag 3/16 coupe presented here is the antithesis of the Hanomag Company's signature utilitarian products. Very few of these are believed to still exist today, especially in the United States. The Hanomag Company's quality and robust construction is apparent throughout, with good German engineering methods used. Powered by an L-head inline four-cylinder engine rated 16 horsepower, the 3/16 coupe has a number of interesting features including the disc wheels, windshield post mounted signal semaphores, adjustable windshield visor and Hanomag horse radiator mascot but it is the full length folding canvas roof that stands out, converting the fully closed Hanomag 3/16 quickly into an open car with fixed side window frames. The condition is remarkable original, just as you would want such a rugged vehicle to be. A charming weekend cruiser for the beach or a drive out in the woods, this interesting automobile is sure to attract attentions wherever it goes.
