1965 NSU Spider - Some Assembly Required

These cars have a place in history... The NSU Spider was the first production car to use a rotary engine.

This car is a serious project, but much of the tough stuff is done. The body is restored and painted, but needs reassembly. The engine is said to be good, but "needs an ignition module in order to run."

Located in Delran, NJ, click here to see the eBay listing.

Jay Leno owns an NSU Spider. You can see a video of it here.

A brief history of NSU's Wankel rotary can be found on Craig's Rotary Page.

I always thought that these were cool. I had a class mate with a 2 cylindar version.

This seems like a very resonable deal.
