I'll write this assuming you know what you're looking at. Everyone should have at least one microcar! I traded a Chinese Water Drop bubble car for this at the Great Pacific North West Mini Microcar Extravaganza a couple years ago. I didn't want to sell the Water Drop on because it looks way better in pictures than it is in real life. This Goggo has a Flintsone's floor. It needs a floor and the lower 2 inches on the doors, but the rest of the body is in good shape. I can't stick my fingers through anything and the the rest of the car is solid. I believe floors can be bought from Uwe Staufenberg in Germany. Look at goggomobil.com There's an English setting. It's missing the electronic shifter and an engine shroud. I know of someone who has an extra shifter. I think an engine shroud from a 250 will work, but I'm not positive. There's not many miles on this. 4,700 or so. I'm guessing there was a problem with the electric shifter in 1958 or 59 and the Goggo was sidelined.
It's registered and plated from Georgia and was bought at Bruce Weiner's microcar auction. It was mistakenly registered as a T250. You get a bill of sale from his auction and I can give you one from me too if you'd like. I can also register and plate it in California if that would be easier for you, but you'd have to pay the California registration fees.
It has all 4 hubcaps (three on the car, one brand new in the box of parts), 2 new in the box tail lights, 5 other used lights, all the glass is in good shape and I think it has all of the chrome. It has the super rare license plate lights. I also believe it has all of the metalwork for the sunroof. There's lots of I believe in this because I haven't seen another T400 to compare.
The engine and transmission have never been started. I was told it was purchased as a complete rebuild from Larry Newberry when I traded for this. It's a 400cc 2-stroke, twin cylinder, 4-speed. It has the hard-to-find correct carb! There's a rebuildable one on The engine and carb are worth what I'm asking.
It's a great looking car and it's tempting to keep, but my current dream is to use an NSU as a daily driver.
There's a strong possibility I can deliver it anywhere in North America for gas money. I almost always make it to the GPNWMME (Great Pacific North West Mini Microcar Extravaganza) and it fits in the back of my F-150. I can store the car inside my storage unit for a few months. I can also help arrange shipping overseas. When I got it, it was outside a garage in Seattle. I really shouldn't trade for it (although I'd love a Citroen 2CV or a Vespa car). I've got 7 cars and another 7 motorcycles and all but the truck are projects in various stages.
If you don't want the the car and the engine and carb, that can be arranged as well.
