It was 1942, and Germany’s victory seemed more and more unrealistic, but Marius Faehrmann didn’t think so, he hated how he had to live because of the war, but he knew how powerful the military was, and so he expected the Allies to get crushed under the iron fist of the Axis Powers.
Faehrmann’s company, Faehrmann Motorwerk produced engines for Axis tanks and planes, but he originally wanted to produce cars for the world, sadly, the war got in the way.
When Germany surrendered in 1945, he had money to do what he wanted, but Marius didn’t know how he would fulfill his dreams, until he met young Robert Gruber who was great with cars. It took them four years to work out the deals and vehicles, but they settled on calling the company FaerGruber Autos, and releasing their first vehicle in 1949, one family car, the A-1 with a 2.66 Litre Inline 4.
The sales for the A-1 were great, and so in 1952 they began selling it outside of Europe, with much success, as it was a very premium car with comfortable seats and a radio.
In 1954, Viktor Seydel, an ex professional race car driver, and current car tuner, met Gruber and Faehrmann, and FaerGruber Autos hired him to lead the racing division of FG GmbH, FG Seydel, and in 1974, FG Seydel was expanded to modify production FaerGrubers and the performance models named SFG.
In 1967, FaerGruber hired Erhart Kehlmann to heavily modify FaerGruber’s to be most luxurious, to rival very luxurious companies without having to design completely new cars. The division was called Kelmann, and they made pullmans as well.
In 1984, all LKWs, Kastenwagens, and Lastwagens were now produced and marketed as FG Commercial, and was now another division of FG GmbH, along with FaerGruber, FG Seydel, SFG, Faehrmann Motorwerk, and Kelmann Luxury.
In 1996 FG bought Gresham for more than 600 million USD.
In 2004, the Kelmann Luxury division was ended, because of unsatisfactory sales due to marketing strategies and rivals.
In 2014, the Kelmann Luxury division was re-incorporated into FG Kelmann, and could be bought at FG dealerships now, with modified FaerGrubers. FG Kelmann still produces pullmans to this day.
