National Museum | Schlumpf Collection

Between 1961 and 1963, Fritz Schlumpf secretly bought large numbers of vintage cars. To make these purchases, he established contact with ‘buyers’ in France, Switzerland, England, Italy, Germany, and the United States. Some of his contacts were extremely fruitful, because half of his collection—more than 200 cars—was acquired from only thirteen of them. The rich industrialist relentlessly acquired classic European cars, while shunning American models.
