Tiny 1959 German Moulded FG Trailer

I thought you guys might like to see this trailer that a British microcar enthusiast has just purchased. It is a 1959 PEKA made, probably in Germany, by Nord-Sud-Plastik and is much like a scaled-down Eriba Puck. It's 12.5 feet long overall and the 66" tall owner can just stand up inside without raising the pop-top. Impressively, it weighs just 240kg empty - that's 530 pounds.

That's very cool. Great potential. It would be nice to see what he does with it. Hint, hint. Nudge, nudge. Say no more!

Sorry, I don't think there will be any more info about this trailer. It has been bought by a guy who specialises in microcars (think BMW Isettas) because he found it and it needed saving, but it needs fiberglass work to replace some internal stiffeners whose failure is causing a partial collapse - that blue string is actually reinforcement for the tow home!

So he'll be selling it on to someone who can do the necessary work and I expect contact will be lost. But it's good to see what may be the only remaining example of this trailer saved from a worse fate.

I have to say, I love European trailers! FG and even non FG, the shapes & curves appeal strongly to me! Thanks Andrew for sharing, this is a really neat trailer & I'm glad that it will be restored & appreciated!

Very interesting. Kind of reminds me of a fiberglass underground oil tank with windows. I would like to see it cleaned up.
