A solvable Hamiltonian for two Dirac particles interacting by instantaneous linear potentials in (1 + 1) dimensions is discussed. The system presents no Klein paradox even if the coupling is rather strong, so particles remain bound. The four independent components of the wave function describing the system resemble the nonrelativistic oscillator eigenfunctions. Although the Hamiltonian is not fully covariant, the effective frequency of the oscillator obeys a typical relativistic Doppler law. In contrast to the nonrelativistic treatment, eigenstates are intrinsically coupled with the overall translational motion of the system.
