Thank you for checking out my listing.

I have imported 24 Trabants to the U.S.A. in the past few years. In Hungary people are taking them to the junk yard. My goal is to save as many as possible. I know Americans love their cars / toys.Well, Trabants are awesome little cars and lots of fun to have and to play with. I hate to see it go, but here is your chance to own a piece of Cold War history.
Trabants were produced in East Germany, DDR, from 1957 through 1991. This is the "people's car", much like West Germany's VW. East Germans paraded these through the Berlin Wall after the collapse of communism in November, 1989. Trabants were made of Duroplast, which is a cotton based resin compound similar to fiberglass. It is weather resistant, very strong and rust proof, built on a steel pan, much like the VW Beetle. It has an aluminum 26 hp 600cc air-cooled 2 cylinder, 2 stroke engine mounted to a 4 speed, with reverse, front wheel drive transaxle. "Trabis" are very dependable and reliable. There are no pumps, i.e. fuel, water or oil to maintain in any Trabant. They are fun to drive, get good mileage @ 35mpg +, handle extremely well, are excellent in snow and weigh only 1350lbs. They will cruise at 60mph all day and can do 70mph+ for short stretches.
