Gebrüder Tüscher in Zurich is one of the very few remaining Swiss coachbuilding companies. The company was founded in 1909 by Otto and Fritz Tüscher.
They initially focussed on bodying busses and utility vehicles, but later they started to design and build coachworks on chassis like Isotta Fraschini, Rolls Royce, Delahaye, Bugatti, Jaguar, MG, Alfa Romeo and the American brands Studebaker, Dodge, Chrysler, Buich, Cadillac, Auburn. In the '30s the Tüscher Brothers were also the Swiss importer of Alfa Romeo.
Expansion continued in the Thirties, and Tuscher became know for its elegant styling, quality construction and tight fitting convertible tops. In 1933 Tüscher had opened a specially built assembly hall for convertible car bodies built in small series mainly on Plymouth and Chrysler chassis, but also - on special order - individual cabriolets on Jaguar-, Delahaye- or Alfa Romeo chassis for wealthy customers.
Tüscher's today's focus is on the building of coachworks for busses.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
