For Sale: 1961 Messerschmitt KR200 in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

A real oddity here in the US, and to be honest chances are that you will be the only one at a car show with one no matter where you reside. However, They did make nearly 40,000 of these cool little Kabinenroller or "Cabin Scooter". These funky little tandem seating, bubble top cars using a Canopy style door automobiles were designed by aircraft engineer Fritz Fend and produced by German aircraft company Messerschmitt from 1955-1964 as in town commuters that found a loophole in the tax that would otherwise be more expensive with a vehicle with 4-wheels. This Messerschmitt has went through a frame off restoration in the near past with very few miles being put on this little bugger. It has sat in a climate controlled personal collection among many other nice units. This Sachs motor starts right up! It shifts and brakes as I am sure it was intended to, the steering is funky but let me tell you what, this thing gets more looks than a Yellow Lamborghini at any stop light....I promise. When the Messerschmitt was imported, the state of Indiana re-issued a VIN# due to that they already had a number that was probably the chassis or engine number on the European certification. with that number they also issued a VIN plate. This is not a clone by any stretch and appears to very authentic. These micro cars have started to appreciate like no ones business.
