Goggomobil Transporter for sale! (but you missed it)

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

goggotransporter01One of the more desireable and elusive Microcars is the Goggomobil Transporter.
Built from 1955 to 1964 by GLAS in Germany, the Transporter was apparently built off the Goggomobil Coupe chassis but reinforced with stronger coil-over shock suspension to accomodate a greater load. It had an option of 250 or 300 cc engines in Germany and 400cc engines for export models. It is a Uni-body construction (like the Goggomobil Coupe and Limo/sedan), the body is basically bolted onto a lower pan that consists mostly of 4 wheel wells connected by a stiff center tube that runs from back to front.
3-4000 were built with at least 2000 of those going to Deutschepost (German Post Office). The rest were work trucks and most all of them got “used up” and then discarded. Less than 100 remain worldwide. This is a condition affecting all Microcar-based trucks so any that remain become that much more desireable.

They do not change hands often and most owners do not want to part with them for any price.
So imagine the buzz when one appears on German eBay.
An un-restored example that is on the Goggo Transporter Register.
The German Goggomobil Forum lit up when this showed up, but after a few days the seller apparently cancelled the eBay listing when bidding reached 10,500 Euros. This left some people thinking it SOLD for that price especially when someone came onto the forum announcing that it did sell for 10,500 €. (I can’t remember if it was someone claiming to be either the buyer or the seller). Whether the thing sold at all is still unclear, sometimes people like to put stuff on eBay just to see what kind of reaction they can get and then yank the listing.

Update: Now someone else has come onto the Goggomobil Forum claiming the vehicle was sold privately for more than 50,000 €

Update 2: It did not sell for 50,000 €, but it did sell privately for a good chunk of change according to the Buyer who provided the details.  The vehicle will stay in Europe but NOT Germany!
(note: Buyer is a member of The Vintage Microcar Club who has been looking for one of these for a long long time…)


HOW TO: Shift A Goggomobil with Pre-select gearbox

Monday, November 17th, 2008

Ralf demonstrates how to use the Reverse button on a Goggomobil Transporter equipped with the electric Pre-select gearbox.
Jim tries to help but sort of fails.

The same info should apply to any Goggomobil with the Electric Pre-select gearbox.

Auction Results: BubbleCar Museum UK

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

 

After squashing a previous rumor that they were closing, the UK-based Bubblecar Museum sent out announcements that there was to be a large Auction of Bubblecars and related parts at the Bubblecar Museum and yes a number of the microcars in the Museum would be sold.

??? So what is it?  They are closing?  They are not closing?

They are selling all the contents?  They are not?

Turns out they ARE CLOSING….but they close EVERY YEAR at this time until the Spring…when they….RE-OPEN.

This time is a little different since they are moving and are “downsizing” the Museum collection and focusing more on British Cars.  While a number of the cars in the recent Auction were from the Museum Collection, the Auction also had Microcars and spares from other people as well mixed in.
There were 186 “Lots”.  About 86 were Microcars.
You can find a list of Auction Results HERE.
