Zerve Tractor & Auto

The Zerve Agriculture & Truck company is an eastern-bloc automaker that started out making tractors in the early 1850s. The company was part of Zerve holdings, a Ukrainian holdings company that originated making boats in the early 1800s. The company was dissolved shortly after Ukraine joined the Soviet Union, into its many branches. Only the “tractor & auto” arm kept the Zerve name. Zerve continued to produce tractors (still the 4th largest agricultural machinery producer in the world), and trucks for the Soviet Union into WWII. The Jobmaster van and Trekmaster feild truck (which rode on the same chassis) were originally made for the war, and the boxer-4 engine originated from a small amphibious transport. The PS32 postwar car was based on the chassis of the WWII Trekmaster, with the same front and rear coil-sprung live axles and 32ps boxer engine. It was a simple 2-door sedan, and was a flop because of critical cooling issues.

The PS51


1951 brought the PS51 4-door. It was made with an upgraded version of the 32ps boxer, pushed to 51ps. The body was a rather badly executed attempt to copy German and Czech aerocars. The car was a success in most markets, and gained a reputation for being quite a sleeper. The 51hp motor and 720kg weight made this little bugger a hoot to drive (for 1951, that is). It was not made to handle fast driving, though. The engines were designed for use as simple truck powerplants, and should have been detuned for this car. They were made with cautious driving through farms and tight city streets in mind, and often gave out after being destroyed by their own capability. They were common tuning platforms, especialy in 60s europe, where people would tune them to their limits. Wagon, van, pickup, and convertible models would later be introduced.
