PETER & MORITZ

A short lived German company, located in Eisenberg / Thuringia, that started car production  in 1921. First they offered a two seater cycle car with an air cooled engine. The car was very similar with the ROVER Eight.                  In 1922 they moved to Naumburg / Thuringia.
Later the engine was water cooled and there were also four seaters and small trucks.
Production ceased in 1925.  No surviving car is known.

Do you know these two guys ?



The German author Wilhelm Busch already used the comic strip technique in 1865 publishing the story about Max und Moritz. 55 years later the two buys are on a radiator emblem. What a crazy idea !
