As you may recall.....

 

I acquired it in trade for dental work from the original owner.

It came off the line October 1965.

It reads 13200 on the clock.

I've put about 200 miles on it, all done for checking out various repairs.

Turf color

Little rust, though there are small bubbles on the door panels and outside edge of rear wheel well.

It's been a SanFrancisco, CA car garaged from 1966 to 2011.

Stored in a garage from 1984 to 2011.

Moved to Oakland and has been garaged to date.

6v

Currently has 2002 engine w/ electric fuel pump.

List of new and replaced parts is extensive....

New battery

New battery cables

New plugs, cap rotor, plug wires, coil

New tierod bushings

New half shaft rubber boots

NOS rear Boges from Neil McMillin

Rebuilt front calipers by Carl Nelson

Rebuilt brake master by Carl Nelson

New and retrofitted strut mount and bearings by Carl Nelson

New front Bilts with spacer fabricated by Carl Nelson

New rear drums, shoes, wheel cylinders

New brake lines from Blunt

New clutch master cylinder

Still has original air filter can.

New radiator hoses and thermostat.

New belts

New Tires

Newly Rebuilt 6v Blaupunkt  Frankfurt

New door seals (in bag)

New Front and rear 3 point seatbelts (bluedevil)

New clutch and bearing

New exhaust from manifold to tail pipe

LED rear window mount brake light strip

Interior is very very good

Trunk very good

dash veneer has small crack near oil pressure gauge

It cleaned up nice...washed and waxed.

Original matching number engine available

Second 1600 engine available with flywheel mounted

Most, if not all original parts that were recently replaced are available.

Blue Service Manual

Owners Manual

Haines Manual

In the package: Transmission seal kit, engine gasket set for 1600

Much more...I'm sure.

Almost all Reciepts for above

Cheers!!

This is the oddest car sale I have ever experienced.

Aside from ebay, where I had 5 bidders with a max bid of $3200, I have only had ONE inquiry (a member of this site). No craigslist, no Autotrader, no on board For Sale sign (which just lists a phone number), no FB inquiry....nothing....nada.....zip.

 

Fortunately, I don't have to sell and it's getting to the napping season anyway.

But damn, no interest in a pretty nice near original, straight, light rust, available matching number engine, low mileage 2 owner vehicle, is mind boggling.

 

I welcome all comments.

 

Cheers!!

Well.........I would, if I could, but I can't. I love NKs! Never owned one, but I've always had a soft spot for them. I really like your car.

But, with this crappy economy and no prospects for meaningful improvement, all I can do is wish you the best of luck with finding it a new home.

I like it. I have a soft spot for NK's. But I knew I would want to paint it and I'm deep in another project. I hope you find a good home for it.

It's wierd

the car should be worth 10K over here by the looks of it

nice driveble rare car, you would be hard pushed to find 2 more in the US I think

if there are more then 30 still driving around in the world I would be very surprised, in 1996 there were only 27 left in Germany and that is probably less than 15 at the moment. There are 3 in Holland registered right now, 2 driveble (mine and  another white one in Amsterdam) and the 3rd is just papers.

There are 5 in france I know of but that is about it. Now and then one does come out of the woodworkover there, but 30 is about it I would say.

So probabely rarer than the Tisa. Just hang on to it, you'll be laughing in 10 years time
