There are obscure cars, then there are really obscure cars. Cars that even dedicated enthusiasts can't identify, instead restoring to Google to scrounge up any info. The Kleinschnittger F 125 is one of those cars. You should buy it.
Weighing in at a minuscule 330 pounds, the Kleinschnittger F 125 was a microcar designed in Germany after World War II. Sold between 1950 and 1957, it acted as a cheap, economical, yet stylish way to get around town. Thanks to a 123cc single-cylinder two stroke engine sending six horsepower to the front wheels, the Kleinschnittger has a top speed of 70 kilometers per hour (around 43 mph), and can pull off an astounding 80 miles per gallon.
This example recently underwent a full restoration, including a repaint, an engine overhaul, and a carburetor rebuild. Furthermore, the rubber suspension, incredibly skinny whitewall tires, bonnet straps, and the steering link have all been replaced.
Of course, all this restored rarity comes with a price—. That's a lot of money for a six-horsepower microcar, we know. But the feeling of confusion and wonder from onlookers nearby when you pull into a classic car meet will certainly be worth it.
