Additional InformationFahrzeugstandort: Bovenden, Schalter 5, Aufbau: 8 Zylinder Reihenmotor, Mit Sicherheit einer der am besterhaltensten Horch 853A Sport Cabriolet weltweit, Wertgutachten über 2,7 Mio EURO (2015). Mit Sicherheit einer der am besterhaltensten Horch 853A Sport Cabriolet weltweit, Wertgutachten über 2,7 Mio EURO (2015).8-Zylinder Reihenmotor , 2 + 2 Sitzer , geteilte Frontscheibe, Farbe: silber/schwarz, Leder: braun mit schwarzen Paining, Karosserie von Gläser, Gut erhaltene Restaurierung von Horch Classic, Sehr detailliert, Markantes Erscheinungsbild ohne seitlich angebrachte Ersatzteile, Begleitet von einem umgebauten originalen ZF-Horch-Getriebe. Horch's 853A was introduced at the end of 1937 as the latest evolution of the company's sophisticated eight-cylinder Grand Tourer. It featured a slightly shorter (3,450mm) wheelbase chassis as well as a 120bhp engine| an all-synchromesh four-speed transmission with overdrive| and a different final drive ratio together with a number of cosmetic refinements. Only 342 examples of the sporting 853A were produced, the most desirable being the handsome and distinctive Sportcabriolet by Gläser Karosserie of Dresden, a company noted for their elegantly proportioned and beautifully built cabriolet bodies on a wide variety of chassis. Approximately a dozen are known to survive. The 853A offered here was acquired in Ukraine in 2012 and subsequently underwent a four-year restoration by Horch Classic in which, reportedly, every mechanical component was fully rebuilt, including the engine and axles. The engine received new bearings and pistons| the camshaft and crankshaft drives were overhauled| the crankshaft and flywheel were accurately balanced| and the engine reportedly bench-tested for 20 hours before installation. A Getrag five-speed all-synchromesh transmission was chosen for its ease of use and reliability (later eight-cylinder Horchs used five-speed gearboxes). A rebuilt original Horch ZF gearbox, sourced by the vendor, is included in the sale. The chassis frame was restored with new metal as necessary, and a new wiring harness specially produced, wrapped in painted cotton to complete the period-correct look. The body was restored with the original sheet metal preserved as much as possible, and its original wooden framework rebuilt to ensure the car's integrity for many years to come. Following its restoration, the body was properly finished in rich black, and the interior re-upholstered in beige leather embroidered with the Horch logo, while the high-quality wool carpeting was piped in the same leather as the seats. Unusually, this car was restored without the common dual side-mounts and thus has a smoother and cleaner appearance than is often seen on this model, adding an additional touch of lightness and grace. Ensuring the occupants' comfort is a properly constructed and finished top, including all-new wooden bows and aluminium trim. Offered with a copy of the original 853A catalogue, this is a beautifully finished example of one of the great European motorcars of its era. Fully restored and available for just a fraction of the cost of acquisition or restoration, this refined and potent Horch 853A is in its most desirable iteration with fabulous Gläser cabriolet coachwork.
