Lot #386 - This is a fine example of post-World War II engineering by the Messerschmitt Aircraft Company. Created by aeronautical engineer Fend Flitzer, the car created quite a stir, as nothing quite like it had ever been seen before. Powered by a 4-cylinder Fitchel & Sachs 174cc/9hp motor, it's equipped with a 4-speed transmission, including a rare reverse gear and optional electric start. The KR-175 is quite capable of cruising at 50 mph. This KR-175 has been completely restored and just about everything in the car is new and refurbished. Mechanically the vehicle starts, runs and shifts remarkably well. The cockpit has ample room for two and is a flat-out showstopper when making an appearance. The frame is precision steel tubular construction with a Plexiglas hood, which opens to admit the driver and passenger. The gauges and electric controls are all in good working condition. From the Tammy Allen Collection.
