Ifa

The world famous IFA brand once belonged to several companies which were letting out a car at the German enterprises which were part of the IFA industrial association which existed since 1947. In the beginning the company gained popularity in military automotive engineering. The trucks "The Phenomenon Facets" released by it, and a little later - easy army vehicles with open bodies, enjoyed deserved popularity. In the late seventies this plant was again renamed again - this time it received the name of "National combine of IFA trucks". Association of two parts of Germany gave the chance to Daimler Benz concern to return the lawful property, so in 1990. The legendary plant was returned to the former owner. However quality of its production didn't correspond to the level of the western market so it was necessary to adapt to new conditions and soon cars of the IFA brand were successfully replaced with trucks of other producer - "Mercedes Benz". Still IFA is a quality symbol.

After World War II the majority of plants of the Auto-Union company, just as DKV, appeared in the Soviet zone. In Zwickau where till 1940 cars of Audi and DKV were made, mountains of garbage and a beaten brick were piled up. Till 1948 nobody could think of production of cars, but it was resumed. Instead of the Audi companies and DKV there was IFA. The first IFA-F9 model could be seen at the Leipzig trade fair in 1948. Unlike the pre-war and first DKV post-war cars, the F9 model had the three-cylinder power unit developed by the Auto-Union company in 1939. Engines of this type didn't appear in the DKV cars made in the West till 1953. This duple motor had the working volume of 900 cm3 and developed the power of 28 hp at 3600 rpm. Its price of 13 200 east brands was too expensive for the ordinary buyer. The F8 model which was the exact copy of pre-war DKV with a two-stroke engine, at the cost of 8415 east brands was also inaccessible. Being too expensive to those who lived in East Germany, these cars in the West were the cheapest in the market. The first copies of the F9 model gathered on the former plant "Audi" in Zwickau, but since 1953 production was transferred to the former plant of the BMW company to Eisenach.

The IFA-F8 car body mostly was made of plywood, but it was unreliable material, and for the F9 model it wasn't used any more. Cars of the IFA company remained in production until them didn't replace well-known — both in good, and in bad sense — Trabant.
