    Welcome to the forum. Trabants in general are pretty rare in the US, but a 1.1 is even more rare. Hopefully you will be able to track one down. Best of luck!

    With this one I have a problem because it is not even close to original. I am looking to buy one without "tuning" like power windows etc. I am really thinking about one importing from Poland. Not sure if it will be 1.1 or 601.

    Good news. I bought Trabi 1.1. Hopefully will be with me in next 2 months.
    Will need some work, but all my previous Trabi need some work and love. Can not wait :) Untitled.jpg

    Hi Everyone,

    Finally Trabolo has new home. I made over 1500 miles round trip (ATL-Chicago-ATL) to pick it up in two days with snow storm and tow dolly (not the best idea :)). He need some work but as a project with my Son (hopefully it will be his first car) we are very excited.

    BTW: looking for some parts like: acceleration cable, hood opener cable, front and rear square bumpers (with plastic/black corners) and spoiler under front bumper - like in 601. I want to make it look like Trabant Polo before serial production (see one of attached pictures). Also probably I will need some rear suspension parts because it sit too low in my opinion.

    Congratulations! My favorite place for parts is Trabantwelt.de , They seem to have everything, are very helpful, and are fair with shipping costs.

    Keep us posted on the progress.

    Beautiful looking dynamo and starter! I need to do that to mine.

    Did you get them rebuilt here in the US? Any guidance/info to where to get this done properly would be greatly appreciated!

    I will be keenly watching your bodywork progress as I am in the same boat!
