ADLER

Frankfurt-based Adler started out in the 19th Century as a bicycle manufacturer, turning later to the production of motorcycles, cars and the typewriters with which its name is most commonly associated today. A highly respected firm in its native Germany, Adler was already manufacturing automobile components when it introduced its first car - a Renault-influenced, De Dion-powered voiturette - in 1900. Within a few years the company was making its own single- and twin-cylinder engines though by 1910 the range was powered exclusively by fours. Some of the latter were huge, one of which was purchased by Kaiser Wilhelm II. Sixes and a straight eight were added to the range in the 1920s and then in 1932 the firm introduced the revolutionary front-wheel drive Trumpf for which it is best remembered.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Manufactured in the year Germany hosted the summer Olympics, this Adler Trumpf Junior most likely bore witness to some of the most defining moments of the 20th century due to its extended life within its homeland. According to its registration book, the car spent the entirety of the post war period within the confines of the worker's paradise, better known as the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. After the wall fell in the 1990s, it would take another decade until this Adler found its ticket out from behind the Iron Curtain and into the United States, thanks to Mr. Schnuerer.

Appearing today in superb condition, the vehicle's restoration has withstood the test of time. Its bodywork displays close shut lines and only minor flaws exist in its glossy blue paint. Thanks to a forward-thinking front wheel drivetrain, the interior is free from any transmission or driveshaft intrusions allowing a flat floor and spacious room for its occupants. The cloth seats appear with little signs of wear.

Well documented with its DDR history, invoices, and even an owner's manual, this Pre-war German oddity will most certainly make for an interesting alternative to your typical Model A Ford or 6-cylinder Chevy of the same period. Das ist ein wunderbar Auto.
