- No reserve
- Original car
- Very noisy!

The first Trabant to emerge was in 1958 and its peculiarity was its plastic body. The 601 appeared in 1964, the brand really got going with this model, and by 1990 more than two million of the 601s would be made. The Trabant we are offering is very special because it is a "rally" version that has been significantly modified. It has two front fog lamps. The rims are special and the stripped interior features Sparco bucket seats with harnesses, a special steering wheel and a fire extinguisher mounted at the rear seat bench. The mechanicals too has received very visible improvements including a strut bar at the front and an impressive expansion chamber, the car making a thunderous noise when the engine is started!
