1967 NSU Spider

I wrote about another NSU Spider back in June. You can find the post here.

The seller claims this Spider has just 3900 miles on it. He states that the car was originally purchased in Kansas and was in storage from 1968 until 1992. In 1992 it found its way to California, where, after being driven just 9 miles, it was again placed in storage.

The pictures of this car were taken in poor light, so they're not the best. From the seller's description and from what I can see in the pictures, this is a remarkably well preserved car.

There is some historical significance to these cars, as they were the first production car to use a rotary engine.

Just 2400 of these cars were built. Very few of those are still around today.If you're looking for a car that would attract gobs of attention at any auto show, this would be a good choice.

Located in Cupertino, CA, click here for the eBay listing for this car.

For some good info on the Wankel rotary engine and NSU, check out Craigs's Rotary Page. You can find it here.
