Here is your chance to own a piece of Cold War history. Trabants were produced in East Germany, DDR, from 1957 through 1991. This is the people's car, much like West Germany's VW, that East Germans drove through the Berlin Wall after the collapse of communism in November 9, 1989. Trabants were made of Duroplast, which is a cotton based resin compound similar to fiberglass that is weather resistant, very strong and rust proof built on a steel pan, much like the Beetle. It has an aluminum 26 hp 600cc air-cooled 2 cylinder 2 stroke engine mounted to a 4 speed, with reverse, front wheel drive transaxle. Trabants are very dependable and reliable. There are no pumps, i.e. fuel, water or oil to maintain in any Trabants. They are fun to drive, get good mileage @ 35mpg +, handle extremely well, are excellent in snow and weigh only 1350 lbs. They will cruise at 60mph all day and can do 70mph+ for short stretches.
