Classic Highlights

Horch 853

Ever since 1927, Horch had made a ‘Horch 8 Sport Cabriolet’. These were initially two-door, two-seat open cars with two side windows only, and two ‘dickey’ seats at the back. As the years passed, the models acquired more space at the back. In 1932, the relevant model in the Horch catalogue was the Type 780. Its successor in 1935 was the 853, one of the most beautifully styled cars of its entire era.

The next model to appear was the Horch 853 A in 1937. Once again, the main differences were under the skin: a new front axle and a 50mm shorter wheelbase.
