Footnotes

  • Founded in 1883 to make agricultural equipment, the company that would become Hans Glas GmbH diversified into motor vehicle manufacturing after WW2, launching the Goggo motor scooter in 1951. Four years later Glas began making the Goggomobil, a two-door micro-car powered by a twin-cylinder two-stroke engine, mounted at the rear, which was available in 247, 296, and 395cc capacities. Over the succeeding decade the Glas range expanded to encompass a variety of larger models, including a 2.6-litre V8 coupé, but the Goggomobil would prove to be by far its most successful and long-lived product, with in excess of 280,000 of all types sold up to June 1969 when production ceased.

    First registered in the UK in October 1963, this left-hand drive Goggomobil micro-car would have been an unusual choice for its then owner, who could have purchased a brand new Mini for considerably less. The car was restored around eight years ago, being repainted in grey over cream in the process, and in 2010 was acquired for his private collection by a retired motorcycle restorer, who overhauled the suspension and braking systems and renewed the chrome trim. Surely one of the best of its kind currently available, this charming German micro-car is offered with an original owner's handbook, workshop manual, MoT to March 2018, and a V5C Registration Certificate.

    It should be noted that the V5C records the engine capacity as 300cc, while the handbook is annotated '392cc' and there is a 'T250' badge on the boot. At time of cataloguing it had not been possible to determine the engine's actual capacity.
