This is the closest thing to a Trabant in term of feeling when you drive it!
It's the F150 truck of the Italian ;-)
The steering is a no more than a Vespa scooter steering handlebar. You sit and drive like on a scooter, but closed into a cabin. The noise and the vibration is very similar to a Trabant, it's a little 180cc two-stroke engine. The gearing is very low with the transmission, so you can pull alot of weight with this little motor, but without any top speed. Very fun to ride, but after 15 mins, you want to come back because it's alot of work to drive this thing.
They were never imported into the USA, but a limited number of about 60 units were sold new in Canada in 1982. Half of them were a delivery van version, and the rest as a pick-up like mine.
