This 1959 Auto Union 1000 Coupé is powered by a 981cc two-stroke three-cylinder, and was restored by owner a few years ago. Initially branded as the DKW 1000 upon introduction in 1953, the model was renamed the 1000 Coupé by Auto Union GmbH for the remainder of its production run between 1958-1965. Few miles have been added by the selling dealer, and fluids were replaced within the last year. This Auto Union Coupé is sold with a transferrable New York registration. 165-width Nexen SB-802 tires are mounted on all four wheels. The car has few cosmetic needs, but the chrome bumperettes and bars could use refinishing. Though sold as the DKW 1000 beginning in 1953, the 2-door saloon was equipped with a larger engine and rebranded as the Auto Union 1000 Coupé for 1959. It was sold alongside the smaller displacement DKW for the 1959 model year, and the Auto Union brand became Audi in 1965. The interior is trimmed in white vinyl, with rubber floor mats and body-color dash and doors. Finishes show well, with come light patina visible on gauge faces and bezels. A Pioneer AM/FM radio replaced the original head unit. The functional VDO odometer shows 6,520 km, and is believed to have rolled once. The trunk contains a chrome spare wheel and a raised sub-floor. The three-cylinder two-stroke engine displaces 981cc, with one ignition coil per cylinder and an aft-mounted radiator located on the firewall. The engine was bigger than the 896cc unit in the DKW variant, and its simple construction utilized just seven moving parts. The front wheels are driven through a column-shifted 4-speed manual with a freewheel to prevent oil starvation during long periods of coasting. Prior service details are unknown, and the seller has replaced fluids within the last year.
