YOU CAN'T FOOL MIKE ! IT's A 1959 GOLIATH (GO-LEE-ATH) GOLEE

http://www.goliath-autohaus.com/goli.html

THE BEST I CAN TELL , THERE ARE 6 IN NORTH AMERICA

AND TWO OF THOSE ARE IN CANADA .

I HAVE HAD 4 OF THE GOLIATH CARS OVER THE YEARS . THIS IS VERY DIFFERENT .

THE ONE ON E-BAY WAS BUTCHERED WITH A VOLVO DRIVETRAIN

AND IS A TOTAL MESS .

MY TRUCK HAS ALL OF IT's ORIGINAL PARTS ~ SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED .

THE SHEET METAL IS REMARKABLY NICE AND IS ALREADY PAINTED !

THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE WILL BE REBUILDING THE ENGINE .

I WAS THINKING ABOUT SNEAKING IT INTO THE VINTAGE BY PUTTING AN ISETTA ON THE BACK ! THINK IT'LL WORK ?

Go off-topic with this, please. Or better yet, move it over to the Goliath FAQ.

IT HAS A 4 SPEED TRANNY .

A 5 SPEED WOULD BE GREAT WITH JUST 500cc TO PUSH THIS THING .

I HAVE A FEELING THAT 1st GEAR WILL BE SO LOW IT WILL CRAWL ALONG .

TOP SPEED IS SOMETHING LIKE 45 mph ! AN ISETTA IS FASTER THAN THIS THING .

WE ARE FAR FROM SOURCING ALL OF THE ENGINE PARTS . I STILL HAVE

A FEW THOUGHTS ABOUT POSSIBLE SUBSTITUTE ENGINES .
