1. The reason I got this car was to put it back on the road and to preserve its place in automotive history. Satisfied that I have put it back on the road in fine form, I am looking to move on to another project. So, here's your chance to own it!

    I have spent many dollars and man-hours on this car. When I got it, it was not running, had 3 flat tires, a tattered, old interior and a bonnet that was not attached to the body! It definitely needed to be rescued and put back on the road. With much-appreciated help from a Trabant specialist (and forum member!) in Nashville, TN, the car is now just about perfect.
    To that end, this is what I have done to the vehicle (all NOS parts sourced from ldm-tuning in Plauen, Germany):

    - New Kumho Solus radial tires (nationwide transferable lifetime balancing / rotation through Discount Tire).

    - ALL NEW BRAKES (re-built master cylinder, NOS fluid reservoir, NOS hubs, NOS wheel cylinders).

    - New upholstery front and rear, professionally installed. Biscuit tweed over tan vinyl. Brand new, no rips, tears, spots or stains.

    - NOS front and rear rubber floor mats, manufactured in Leipzig, Germany.

    - New front and rear carpet with Trabant logo.

    - NOS rear-view mirror.

    - New Duracell 6V battery (purchased 2/16 at Batteries Plus).

    - All wheels repainted.

    - New 6V bulbs throughout.

    - Rebuilt generator.

    - Rebuilt carburetor.

    - NOS fuel tank.

    - NOS fuel tank cap.

    - New fuel pet-cock valve.

    - New 4-position exhaust assembly.

    - NOS voltage regulator.

    - NOS windshield washer dash controls.

    - NOS lug nut covers.

    - NOS hub caps with Sachsenring logo.

    - NOS front and rear mudflaps with Trabant logo (not yet installed, never opened and still in plastic wrap).

    - New spark plugs (from Germany) and NOS spark plug wires (wires not yet installed).

    - NOS choke cable.

    - NOS throttle cable.

    - NOS brake and clutch pedal pads.

    - New windshield washer fluid tubes.

    - NOS steering wheel.

    - NOS turn indicator switch.

    - Re-chromed front headlight bezels, mirror finish absolutely like new!

    - NOS bonnet hardware.

    - Tool kit (super cool - every tool stamped "Made in USSR").

    - German / English repair manual. I have made a Table of Contents and placed the materials in a 3-ring binder.

    Everything on this car works except for the horn (you can buy a new horn on the web for less than $20.00). Simply pull the choke, turn the key, and it starts right up and goes down the road. All lights work, and even the speedometer / odometer work!

    This car has some very rare options, including the early circular speedometer, the window vents and the wiper pressure blades.

    There are some scratches on the hood and fender-wells (see photos). It looks like the fenders got a little scratched in the container on the way over...

    Car also comes with original keys, jack and Pneumant spare tire (this is the original spare tire brand from Germany, and is still stamped "Made in GDR" (German Democratic Republic). The car even comes with the original leather spare tire tie-down and plastic fuel level stick! The seatbelts say "Made in USSR." A large supply of spare parts will also go to the new owner, including 2 spare carburetors, spare NOS rear-view mirror (never opened, still in GDR box), spare side-view mirror, and spare generator. Glass is in great shape, but there is slight wiper abrasion on the windscreen (see photos). Haven't tried to polish it out.

    Clear Georgia title. The VIN is 1024107

    Vehicle is located in Powder Springs, GA, 10 miles off I-75 exit 267. Seller will assist buyer in shipping in any way possible, at buyer's expense.

    I will lose money on this car, but I would like to see it go to someone who will enjoy it and drive it! So....MAKE ME AN OFFER. The worst that could happen is I say no. Also interested in other micro cars of the same condition for trade.
