Hi all! I've recently become interested in Trabants serving the different state departments of the DDR, how these were used and what they looked like. It's a tricky question, I find, given the many creative conversions done to Trabis after the Fall of the Wall, throwing me for a loop. For example, I have been able to positively confirm that the NVA used Trabant Kübels, and the East German postal service used both Kombi and Limousine Trabis. However, I've also seen pictures of Trabant Limousines in NVA colors and markings. Did the NVA actually use the Limousine, or are the ones in existence merely the product of a creative Trabant owner, post 1989? So what departments of the East German state used Trabis? The fire department? Police? Others...? And what did these look like? All the preserved Trabis formerly in service with the Deutsche Post that I've seen have been beige (or papyrus white?), but I recently found this screen grab from the 1970:ies movie "Hallo Taxi": I've never seen a postal Trabi with that kind of yellow before. But given it's from a period East German movie, it ought to be legit, right?
