In the state of Iowa, USA, a 1960 1960 Messerschmitt KR200 was put up for sale. You can buy a unique 3-wheel red car with a hinged cab and an engine with 10 horsepower for 17.5 thousand dollars.

The Messerschmitt KR200 was built by German aircraft engineer Fritz Fend. In fact, this model is a 3-wheeled motorcycle stroller, on which the designer installed a hinged cab. The car was produced from 1955 to 1964. According to the seller, the 60-year-old car was partially restored and repainted, and the folding plexiglass dome was replaced after damage. In addition, the body and underbody of an unusual vehicle are covered with pockets of corrosion, and the owner deliberately removed some of the parts before restoration.

The interior of Messerschmitt also needs restoration. Two of his seats, located one after another – are very worn out. In addition, the flooring, which has corroded over time, requires replacement. In a relatively acceptable condition, there is only a dashboard and a steering wheel resembling an airplane steering wheel, which is partially painted in the color of the car body.

Under the hood of the KR200 is a single-cylinder air-cooled unit. The installation is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission located in the door and allows the machine to reach speeds of up to 90 km / h.

To date, the value of Messerschmitt at auction has reached $ 15 thousand. However, a 3-wheeled vehicle can be purchased at any time at the maximum set price, which is 17.5 thousand dollars.
