The company A. Felber & Co was a well known manufacturer of motorcycle sidecars in Vienna and began 1952 with the production of automobiles. In 1954 the production was stopped. The designer was Ernst Marold. The Felber company was active as a dealer in three-wheeled vehicles such as Heinkel / Trojan and Reliant for a long time . The main business, however, was the manufacture of "Austromat" industrial washing machines.
The only production model was a tricycle with the single wheel at the rear. The used two-cylinder two - stroke engine from Rotax had a displacement of 398 cm³ and drove the single rear wheel. The vehicle had no doors. For getting in and out, the roof and side windows can be folded back in one unit. About 400 copies were made.
Two car scooters were exhibited in the RRR Roller, Rollermobile & Wurlitzer museum in Eggenburg . The collection was closed. A large part of the collection was auctioned by Dorotheum in July 2020, but the two Felber were not there.
The coachbuilder Hofmann & Moldrich from Vienna manufactured ten or twelve copies of a coupé named Möve , which resembled the Fuldamobil, on the chassis of the Felber Autoroller between 1953 and 1954 .
The only remaining gull can be seen in the Aspang Automobile Museum in Aspang-Markt .
