Steyr 50 Baby- 1936

Steyr 50 Baby- 1936

The history of Steyr dates back to 1820 with the manufacturing of sporting and military rifles. The concentric circle of the Steyr badge represents a target. The terms of the Versailles Treaty after the first World War took away all Steyr’s business except for bicycles. They soon decided to enter the car business and the first car went into production in 1920. Their history includes associations with Daimler, Porsche, and FIAT, among others. The Type 50 you see here is said to resemble a FIAT 500. It was offered in one body style–the 2-door coupe which seats four people. This model was the best selling of all Steyrs. Steyr’s factories were nearly destroyed during World War II. After the war, Steyr made bicycles before moving to trucks and tractors in 1946. Cars were made again from 1953 to 1977. The company continues to make trucks.
