1963 AUTO UNION DKW 1000 S saloon, red over white
FINISHED IN RED OVER WHITE COMPLIMENTED WITH CONTRASTING PERIOD INTERIOR. The smart and forward-thinking DKW was manufactured within the titanic Auto-Union group, makers of some of the finest racing cars the world has ever seen. With its torque high-revving engine and 4 wheel independent suspension transverse leaf spring up front and trailing arms at the rear the 3=6 and the 1000 showed their worth in European touring car racing in the late-1950s. When tested by The Motor in 1960, a 1000S Coupe had a top speed of 81mph with 26mpg economy although its expensive �1,259 price tag was remarked upon, this being �111 more than the much larger Austin Westminster. Around 171,000 were sold worldwide before production came to an end in 1963. Dating from the last year of production, this 1000S 2 door saloon was 1st UK registered in December 2015 and has had just 1 owner since. a very original example in super original condition with very little evidence of any previous restoration and virtually no rust.
