In our country there must be enthusiasm for one Wartburg 353. The DDR status symbol dating from 1972 is in absolute new condition. Certainly if we also let you know that it is a very special one Wartburg.

Apart from the low mileage, the thing functioned with its smoking and crackling 991 cc from new to the last edition in 1979 as so-called 'chase car' for the official Wartburg factory rally team in the famous Lombard RAC Rally. Then a new tuned engine came in, coupled with a five-speed gearbox, the entire chassis was refreshed. No expense was spared before the machine entered the - heated - garage. It has been there until last year. This Wartburg is equipped with - Girling! - disc brakes at the front and aluminum brake drums at the rear. Current mileage: 14.000 miles. He is with the second owner in Great Britain. Because of advancing age and the associated other interests, he would like to get rid of it. This is not just another one Wartburg, but a very special one. And they don't give it away: at least £ 5.000,00. It may sound shocking, but then you also get something special. With history. If you are interested, then first get your finances in order - that is, count money - then a message to the AMK editors and we can get things done for you ...

  1. Hallo,

    I know that the adv. was published in 2011 but maybe the car is still for sale?

    Can I possibly send the seller's personal details by mail?

    Thanks in advance for the prompt reply.
