T600ron-hackenberger-collection-2017

If you’ve been looking for an obscure project car, we can think of few better places to find one than at this upcoming car auction. Minnesota auction company VanDerBrink Auctions will sell off the collection of over 700 vehicles Ron Hackenberger has amassed over the years. Everything will be sold at no reserve, and from what we can tell, even fans of the most unusual machines will be able to find something.

For instance, if you’re into tiny cars, he has a few from all over the world, including a few Honda N600s and Z600s, several Crosleys, an Isetta, and even a Goggomobil. We also spotted a Subaru 360 lurking in one of the photos. Hackenberger has an array of European classics such as British and Italian roadsters, and various French cars, including a number of Citroen DSs and 2CVs. There are plenty more typical, large American classics including Kaisers, Packards, and Hudsons. Peppered among the much older classics are some more recent vehicles. Two of the most famous, or infamous, gull-winged automobiles, a DeLorean and a Bricklin SV-1, appear in the garage. Hackenberger even has an Amphicar and a rear-engine Tatra from the former Czechoslovakia. The collection isn’t limited to cars, either. Several tractors and bumper cars are also part of the collection.

Even with all the variety in Hackenberger’s collection, one brand of vehicle does stand apart as a clear favorite. Among the man’s 700 vehicles, 250 were built by Studebaker. This likely has something to do with the fact that, according to VanDerBrink Auctions, Hackenberger’s first car was a 1948 Studebaker. In the pictures of the collection, you’ll find loads of Studebaker trucks, compact Larks, and stylish Hawks. He has at least one original, Studebaker-built Avanti, as well as some horse-drawn wagons and buggies from the company’s early days.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these vehicles, or even just taking a look at them, the auction event starts on Friday, July 14 at the collection in Norwalk, Ohio. That Friday is just a preview day, and the following Saturday and Sunday are auction days. And if you can’t make it, you can bid online, or check out more photos and video at the VanDerBrink and Hackenberger websites.

U.S. T 87 sold at ebay

t87_k_renovaci_prodej_03_800_600-2016

Needless Czech automotive hobbyist who would not know Tatra T87, a renowned aerodynamic cars from Kopřivnice. Its chief designer was Hans Ledwinka and T87 is basically the second generation model T77. It was shorter, lighter and more powerful version of the Tatra T77 and had a better driveability. Inside the T87 has a three-liter eight-cylinder air-cooled OHC, which offered 85 horses and drove the car up to 160 km / h. That’s because it was amazingly aerodynamic – drag coefficient of 0.36 is a good result today, and here we are talking about the car, which first appeared on the market in 1934.
In his time with the Tatra T87 produced about three thousand, but today most of them very likely to exist. This car has barely meet on Czech roads and of course even more rare in the United States, where he also is one of the prized pieces of automotive history. In connection with the June sale of a piece in perfect condition we talked about 10 pieces T87 on US soil, and such information is not hard to believe.
The beautiful, renovated and dark blue was one of them. Second, about which we hear now is in much worse shape, as you can see in the photos below. It was recently found in Virginia in the abandoned premises of the company, dealing with car repairs. The Tatra was once entrusted to bring it back to perfect condition, for some reason, but also other steps “by cage ‘cars was left fallow. Reportedly, after decades, so instead the renovation got her just the opposite – the gradual decay.

Details on this finding us a lot of sellers did not communicate, it is not even certain that the car production year 1947 or 1948, one of them but it will be. With regard to the above mentioned car is available a number of new parts that are still in very good condition and could be used. However, what of the car itself, we do not know – the vendor talks about that except unflattering parts of the state around the left rear wheel of the car is still in usable condition and suitable for renovation.
There is no doubt that this car will need a lot of work before getting into a state in which the owner wanted him to present in shows or rallies, but beyond a point of no return, definitely not. Evidenced by the price at which the weekend were sold at auction on eBay . The selling price was a nice round $ 50,000, in the crowns it was about 1.28 million.
That includes the car in such a state really a lot of money and Americans remember how 10 years ago as 50,000 USD bought two T87 good or at least fully driveable condition. In this regard, the market really is mad, and Tatra which obviously are not spared. On the other hand, look at her – even in this state is a charming piece of technology that you simply renovating deserve. So a big thank you to anyone who is not afraid to plunge into millions of such cars to be chic again …

office@akaziaverlag.at

wei Autoren schrieben ein Buch über die beiden Autopioniere Hans Ledwinka (1878-1967) und dessen Sohn Erich (1904-1992), die in Steyr, Nesselsdorf/Kopřivnice und Graz ihre Meisterleistungen vollbrachten. Hans Ledwinka war für das erste in Steyr produzierte Auto verantwortlich und leitete dann das Tatra-Werk in Mähren (Tschechien) bis 1945. Sein Sohn Erich konstruierte nach beruflichen Einsätzen in Nesselsdorf, Berlin, München und Steyr in Graz den Steyr-Puch Haflinger und den Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer.


„Den Anstoß, das Buch zu schreiben, gab die Schenkung des schriftlichen Nachlasses der beiden Konstrukteure durch Hans Ledwinka an das Stadtarchiv Steyr“, sagt der Journalist Hans Stögmüller, der gemeinsam mit dem Techniker Ing. Günther Nagenkögl Autor des Bandes ist. Der promovierte Chemiker Hans Ledwinka lebt in St. Ulrich bei Steyr und ist der Sohn Erichs und der Enkel von Hans Ledwinka.

Mehr als zwanzig Schachteln voll mit schriftlichen Unterlagen, Plänen und Fotos umfasst der Nachlass Ledwinka. Er wurde von Mitgliedern der Historiengruppe der Redtenbacher-Gesellschaft Steyr geordnet und dem Steyrer Stadtarchiv übergeben.

Das Buch gibt einen perfekten Überblick über Leben und Schaffen von Ledwinka Vater und Sohn. Hans Ledwinka, der am 14. Februar 1878 in Klosterneuburg bei Wien geboren wurde, besuchte nach einer Schlosserlehre die Werkmeisterschule in Wien und ging dann als Konstrukteur nach Nesselsdorf in Mähren. Er wirkte bereits beim ersten Auto mit, der als „Präsident“ 1898 vorgestellt wurde.

Nach einer kurzen Zeit bei einem Wiener Dampfwagen-Erzeuger war er ab 1906 als Leiter der Abteilung Automobilbau in Nesselsdorf beschäftigt. Dann kam 1916 der Ruf nach Steyr, wo er die Automobilfertigung aufbaute und den ersten Wagen, den Typ Steyr II, entwickelte. Weitere Typen folgten, doch Ledwinka übersiedelte 1923 wieder nach Nesselsdorf, wo er Werkschef wurde.

Es folgte eine Vielzahl von Personenwagen, darunter die epochale Entwicklung des Tatra 11 mit luftgekühltem Zweizylinder-Motor, Zentralrohrrahmen und Pendelachse, aber auch Stromlinienautos, Lastwagen, Eisenbahnfahrzeuge und Flugzeuge. 1945 wurde Ledwinka verhaftet und wegen Staatsverrats sechs Jahre einsperrt. Anschließend lebte er in München.

Sein Sohn Erich kam 1930 nach dem Maschinenbaustudium an der TH Wien zu seinem Vater nach Nesselsdorf, wo er an der Entwicklung einiger Autos mitarbeitete. 1937 bis 1940 war er beim Flugzeugbauer Bücker in Berlin tätig, um dann wieder zu Tatra zurückzukehren. Ihm gelang rechtzeitig die Flucht vor den Sowjets. Nach freiberuflicher Tätigkeit in Bayern kam er 1950 zu Steyr-Daimler-Puch nach Steyr. Er wurde dafür auserkoren, einen Kleinwagen zu entwickeln, aus dem nach mehreren Varianten der Steyr-Puch 500 mit Fiat-Karosserie entstand.

Anschließend war Erich Ledwinka Technischer Direktor in Graz, wo er für den Haflinger und den Pinzgauer verantwortlich zeichnete. Auch an der Entwicklung des Geländewagens Puch G war er beteiligt, der heute noch in Graz als Mercedes G erzeugt wird. Erich Ledwinka promovierte an der TU Graz zum Doktor der Technischen Wissenschaften.

Hans Ledwinka wurde mit dem Dr. h. c. geehrt und wie auch sein Sohn mit vielen Ehrungen überschüttet. Vorläufiger Höhepunkt war 2007 die Aufnahme in die Ruhmesgalerie (European Automotive Hall of Fame) in der Eingangshalle des Genfer Autosalons. Neben Ferdinand und Ferry Porsche ist Hans Ledwinka der dritte Österreicher in der illustren Runde von Autokonstrukteuren.

Die Autoren:

Günther Nagenkögl, geb. 1946 in Steyr. Von 165 – 1970 bei Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG als Motorenkonstrukteur. Ab Herbst 1985 Gruppenleiter „Neue Motorenprojekte“. 1990 Eintritt in das Motorenforschungsinstitut AVL-List GmbH in Graz. Leitung des Konstruktionsbüros für Nutzfahrzeugmotoren am Standort Steyr. Ab 2009 im Ruhestand. Selbständiger Konsulent für Dieselmotorenkonstruktion.

Hans Stögmüller, geboren 1949 in Steyr, war Redakteur einer oberösterreichischen Tageszeitung. Er beschäftigt sich seit langer Zeit intensiv mit der Geschichte der Eisenstadt Steyr und ihrer Umgebung. Er verfasste die Bücher »Wehrgraben. Führer durch Geschichte und Arbeitswelt« (1987) und zusammen mit Gerhard Sperl und Werner Tippelt den Kulturführer »Österreichische Eisenstraße« (1992). 2010 erschien sein Buch »Josef Werndl und die Waffenfabrik in Steyr«. Als Mitglied des Vereins »Freunde der Geschichte der Stadt Steyr und der Eisenwurzen« ist er auch regelmäßig Autor für das Jahrbuch des Stadtarchivs Steyr.
