1959 "GOGGOMOBIL DART" DETAIL

Palm Springs, CA

It should come as no surprise that the fellow who brought this Goggomobil Dart to the Desert Classic also brought a wonderfully-restored BMW Isetta. Both cars were important to post-war Europeans, not only for their low prices and high reliability, but especially for their "fun factor". What a great name for a car! Goggomobil Dart models were built under license to the Goggomobil parent company in Germany by a company in Sydney, Australia. Only about 700 of them were ever built, so they do have some inherent value because they are so rare. If fiberglass sporty cars built in Australia ever have a huge leap in value, then the owner of this Goggomobil Dart will be in fine shape --- Better shape than this car at the Desert Classic. New or young car collectors --- Cars like this Goggomobil are a great place to start your collection.
