Steyr–Puch

Steyr began as a manufacturer of rifles in 1864 (as Josef und Franz Werndl & Comp., Waffenfabrik und Sägemühle), but the Versailles Treaty after World War I permitted the company to make only bicycles. In 1920, it began making cars, merging with Austro–Daimler–Puch in 1934. The company formed alliances with companies including Daimler–Benz AG and Fiat. While known to some in Austria for its Fiat 500 (1957–77) licensed models, it has built, for Daimler–Benz, the G-Wagen since its inception. No cars have had the Steyr–Puch name since. The company was gradually broken up after 1987.
