Footnotes

  • Perhaps the biggest mystery concerning Ernest Heinkel’s ‘Kabine Cruiser’ is how its creator got away with producing a design outwardly so similar to BMW’s Isetta. Launched in 1956, the Heinkel used a 175cc four-stroke single-cylinder engine originally developed for a motor scooter and, while closely resembling the Isetta, was both lighter and roomier, even providing children’s seats in the rear. Production was discontinued in Germany in 1958 but continued in other countries, Ireland included, where around 8,000 were built before the rights transferred to Trojan in the UK in 1961. Trojan had been manufacturers of unconventional light cars in the 1920s and 1930s, and the acquisition of the Heinkel - marketed as the Trojan 200 - marked the company’s return to motor manufacture after a break of 25 years. Around 7,000 Trojan 200s were built before the firm quit car production again in 1965.
    Although not used on the road for some years, this example has, we are advised, been run recently. Offered complete with a bespoke trailer and quantity of spare parts, it comes with old-style logbook and Swansea V5 registration document. No reserve.
