1958 Goggomobil Transporter

The prototype transporter was recognizable by its raked windshield and smooth body with no pressings. Late vans had additional pressings above the front wheel, and a diamond above the rear. The 400 cc transporter motor had two more horsepower than the coupe and the sedan 400's.
