I picked up a new project. It's a 1978 Trabant that has been horrifically modified. I was under the assumption that it was a Kübel, but the info plate says 601Z which I'm lead to believe means the Tramp. What I don't understand is why the car is (well, was) painted NVA green if it's the civilian Tramp version. It has green paint buried under the black respray and a green cloth top. (I've attached a picture of the fender where the paint has rubbed off exposing the green underneath) Because I'm American, I have very limited up close exposure with any form of Trabant, so any knowledge will be helpful. I don't even know the difference between the Tramp and the Kübel besides the name. While I'm here, I was curious how much these (whether it's a Tramp or a Kübel) are worth in the US in a much less modified form. I'm going to undo a lot of the modifications, but the end value could change how deep I go. For instance, I probably won't feel like gutting the homemade wiring if the resulting car is only worth $8000. Likewise, I probably won't feel like stripping and repainting the car to its original NVA green if it's not cost effective. That isn't to say I'm working on this car just for the profit. I'm doing it for the love of the car, but I have my limits.
