    Looks in good condition cosmetically but there are some indications its not original but more of a tribute car - example, this type of steering wheel was not available until mid-1980s, car is listed as 1974...personally I would use the same kond of money on a late year completely original car...although this may bring more attention at local car shows or Trabi events

    The problem, in my case is that unfortunately I'm in California, and so post 1975 is verboten out here. Very much appreciate you having a look!

    Mithras, You may have seen this one listed already. The ad is pretty minimalistic and no real contact other than PM.
    Claims to be a 1964 Universal (non-existent, the Uni was first made in later 1965) , but it's a Trabi in Nor Cal and they claim to have owned it for a long time.
    Good luck and let us know if you were able to contact them.

    The description says it is a replica. Also that it still needs timed to run properly. The point I really want to make though is that you should be looking for one that someone you trust can look at for you and advise you . . . maybe even help with shipping arrangements. It being within the availability of someone like that to check it out is worth more than whether or not it is real or a replica. In this case he says he got it through inspection a year ago but then never drove it enough even to get it timed properly, I'd hope for one that was road ready.

    @Mithras How many years to grandfather inning CA? Or is it a set year? 1975 and before?

    Here in Washington it must be 25 years or older, so the 1,1s became legal here five years ago.
