Fuldamobil- 1955

The Fuldamobil was produced by Nordwestdeutscher Fahrzeugbau (NWF) of Wilhelmshaven, Germany and Elektromaschinenbau Fulda GmbH of Fulda, Germany between 1950 and 1969. Designed by Norbert Stevenson, it featured a three-wheeled configuration and a small engine. Despite its diminutive size, the Fuldamobil provided an economical and practical solution for urban commuting.

The earliest Fuldamobil cars were primarily constructed of wood framework and plywood sheeting for the bodies. The Fuldamobil Type S, such as this 1955, were bodied in aluminum, whereas the later cars, and many of the licensed versions of Fuldamobil cars around the world, were bodied in fiberglass. Not only is this an early steel bodied version, it also remains in completely original, unrestored condition.
