Arthur Bechtel – A Pioneer with Passion

In 1972 “Oldtimer” was a term that meant something to only a few people in Germany. A sizable market for classic cars did not exist at the time in Europe - and there was no sign of one developing. This didn’t worry the young Arthur Bechtel, who went ahead and set up his own classic car trading and service company.
