Where does the name come from? It doesn’t sound that Dutch. I know the dialect there is quite German-like, but not sure if a name like that would have sold in 1946 there.

The 801 is looking good though simple, cheap and economical, like many of the Dutch entrepreneurs and surrounding countries favoured in the post-war years to drive their goods around or go to clients.

Only one critique would be the fuel door, which is quite big compared to the vehicle.


#4

Thank you for your help.
To point it out, naming stuff is not my greatest talent…
The name is an alteration of a Dutch family name (don´t know which one anymore).
Variation of it seemed mandatory ans to keep distinguishability to Holts up.

tha variant names are kept english for simplicity of me naming the vehicles and you being able to understand what they are supposed to tell you.

EDIT:
that german-like dialect comes from the fact that Maastricht is the Anhultz headquarter location and not far off the german border.
and currently, the Anhultz 801 is produced in a factory locaded in Germany because manufacturing capacity was availabe there

DELETED; part of pre-reboot lore

Note:
this double post is intentional and done to keep lore seperated.

Anhultz lore progresses to 1947

The release year of the Anhultz 801 was a great success which gave Anhultz the money and time to engineer a new range of engines for further vehicle production.

“We have made enough money to have a decent foundation on improving our technology. The plans for the next years will include a medium to heavy duty van or truck for cargo transportation and a new, heavily standardized lineup of engines to be used in future vehcles.”
– Thomas Anhultz; Founder of Anhultz Motorcars

Anhultz Lore progresses to 1948

Most of the year 1948 has been spent finishing development on our new engine linup.
In june, engineers at Anhultz started developing a new vehicle planned to serve as a medium-duty delivery van. It will use our newly made 800cc engine and will carry 1.5 tons of cargo. It will be available for purchase in October of 1949.

Anhultz Lore progresses to 1949

Development in the new delivery van has been finished and we are able to sell it to the general public now.

Anhultz Motorcars is proudly presenting the

NOTICE

Anhultz lore has been redone and as such, it will restart in 1946.


before 1946

Major happenings at Anhultz:

  • Anhultz is founded by Thomas Anhultz as an engine manufacturer (1922)
  • Headquarters are established in Maastricht. (1924)
  • Leftover factory is bought to produce first car, a plan sitting in Thomas’ head for years.(October 1945)
  • Engineering on the first car has started

1946

Major happenings at Anhultz:

  • Anhultz 100 is released.
  • Production facility established in Aachen, Germany

The start for Anhultz as a car company has been… challenging.
After WWII, there was not much of a choice for a car to make, if it were to be sold in the countries of mainland europe.
The result was the Anhultz 100, the people’s car for those who just needed some means of transport.

The only goal is to get the europeans moving again after WWII had taken it’s toll.

If this strategy works, is only decided by selling it and waiting…

1947

Major happenings at Anhultz:

  • Anhultz 100 is expanded by 2 new variants.
    (Anhultz 100 Pick-Up)
    (Anhultz 100 Bestelwagen)
    (Anhultz 100 Tweedeur Luxe)
  • existing Anhultz 100 is renamed to: Anhultz 100 Tweedeur
    (no technical changes have been made)

The Anhultz 100 had a fairly strong start, especially due to it’s purchase price and fuel economy.
Anhultz proceeds normally in their plans of expanding the 100 into a full model range.

Isn’t it kinda early for a German/Dutch company to be making a pickup truck in 1947?


#9

I don’t know If you’ve been to 1947 Germany, but utility vehicles of any kind would certainly the smartest thing for a local company to build that year.


#10

> be europe
> Be blitzkrieg'd to shit for five years
> Germany nibbled half of europe
> Still lost
> Warzone everywhere
> Everybody ran out of money
> Gotta rebuild shit
> Gotta get them crops out of them fields as cheaply yet fast as possible

So yeah smol pickup trucks would make sense.

Yet I can think of post war small panel vans but not pickup trucks :thinking:


#11

i definitly understand your problems with (smol) trucks in europe.
but since it is literally the same as the panel van (apart from the roof and rear door), i see very little reason to not build it, considering how little effort is needed to engineer that thing


#12

1948

Major happenings at Anhultz:

  • Anhultz 100 is expanded by another 4 new variants.
    (Anhultz 100 Cabriolet (Luxe))
    (Anhultz 100 Vierdeur (Luxe))

With the new additions gaining traction quickly, and the existing Anhultz 100 Tweedeur continuing it’s strong start, the flow of money has been good, allowing for Anhultz to further expand the 100 series to what was planned in the first place.
