Listing is woefully short on details but is certainly "Different"! :lol:
Might be the perfect body for the diesel and reverse trike crowd?

From the Ebay listing, I added the bold print:
Quote:
The kit can be shipped disarmed in 13 parts to any part, by parcel and shipped armed.
I want mine armed, preferably with one of those Gatling guns they use on the A-10 Warthog... That'll take care of traffic, even in Atlanta. :mrgreen:

Yo qui taco bell? :wink:
I think "disarmed" means dismantled.
Doubt they will sell any in the U.S. until they get many more details posted.
Cute kit if they have details like a street legal windshield figured out.

Got an answer to my email.
Still losing a little in translation but not too badly.
With a DOT approved windshield I would rather have one of these than a so called "Smart Car", at least these have some style.

Quote:
The car can be shipped divided into 13 parts to be assembled or in one piece, that you decide, it has chassis included, in the lower part of the floor, and tubular reinforced in the top, identical to the original, kit includes, Front windscreen, only, the side windows are plexiglass and are NOT included ,,, which includes the kit is as follows:
Lower chassis
Upper tubular
Front windshield
front Headlights
rear Headlights
Left side mirror
Frontal Heinkel emblem
Hinged rear cover
The cost of shipping is paid by the buyer ,, or you can pick it up at home, the delivery time at the time of making the purchase is 3 weeks for its manufacture, for the moment we have 2 in stock, for immediate delivery, When making full payment of the item.,, and the car has a frame that I built the same as the original, and is covered with fiberglass to give it more hardness and stability, has chassis down and protection of cage in the head and rear, is very Reinforced, I highly recommend a HONDA 250CC AUTOMATIC engine, there is a motorcycle that was sold in USA elite Honda 250cc that engine is excellent for this car, can be a 150cc engine at 250cc is an excellent option. and the windshield have a DOT because was a made in factory of windshield in Mexico.
Give me an email and I'll send you more detailed photos

I'd be curious just in the windshield....

I note the "seller" has only feedback as a buyer...never as an actual seller. Does not inspire confidence. :BH:

I give him double points for staying on his side of the border and trying!
Hopefully he will get his marketing together and sell a bunch, maybe hire some Mexicans to work for him. :D
