AUSTRO-DAIMLER ADR8 ALPINE EIGHT

Tourer, saloon, cabriolet, limousine.

Chassis of ADR type with same swing-axle rear end, but this one has a splendid nine-bearing light-alloy motor with dual ignition, 16-plug head, dual-choke carburettor, and dry sump lubrication. The four-speed 'box features an overdrive top and brakes are servo-assisted hydraulics. Weighs over two tons, but it'll top 90mph and the bodies are usually lovely.
