Acquired this nice original apple green Wartburg from the son-in-law of the original owner about four years ago while I was living in Budapest, Hungary. Imported it to Virginia, USA three years ago. In the early '80s IFA began phasing out chrome-plated and other bright trim in favor of black trim. Small black center caps replaced hubcaps and chrome door handles were replaced by black plastic items. The one-barrel BVF carburetor was replaced by a Jikov made in Czechoslovakia, which is a one-barrel with a secondary, so that the main barrel can be smaller and theoretically deliver better mileage. Other changes include a smaller, fatter steering wheel and redesigned seats with headrests. Also the pan under the front bumper was replaced with a "spoiler." The "Deluxe" model was replaced by "S" (Sport) and mine is an S, which includes the faux wood trim on the dashboard and road lights in the front valance. I named this car Tibor after a friend of mine in Budapest who was my translator and go-between, as well as philosopher. I have had no problems with this car except for changing the head gasket. The trunk contains the original Pneumant spare tire that has never been used.
