1975 Trabant 601 601S 0.6 2 cylinder 2 Stroke from UK and Ireland
The best thing since sliced bread!
The exhaust bracket up front snapped. Easily replaced.
Rear wheel cylinder leaked fluid and was replaced cheaply via the Owners Club.
Windscreen washer motor was seized when I got car. Stripped it apart, freed it off very easily.
Fantastic little car. I had one before (1988 model 601) and sold it. Wished I hadn't so searched the UK for another and found this one.
Great to drive, turns heads where ever I go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
