1970 NSU 1200 – Strange Car of the Week


This is rare to see on our shores but up in the hills of North Carolina we’ve come across this 1970 NSU 1200. 1970 marks the first full year after NSU was taken over by Volkswagen and folded in with DKW and Auto Union to produce Audi. The 1200 was a rebranded Type 110 and shared much of the same mechanicals. The 1177cc air-cooled straight four cylinder engine boasts 54hp and is mounted transversely in the rear. We doubt that the stinger style tailpipes are stock but without bumpers we see rally potential all over this one. Find it on Craigslist in Hickory, NC having just been reduced from $2500 to $2000.
