  • Maico 500
    based on what remained of their Champion line of autos Although offered in 400cc version sales showed the public clearly preferred the larger 500 model actually 452cc Heinkel 461 A O water cooled 2 stroke But even though there was sufficient space for 4 people and a great deal of storage space something was missing Perhaps it was quality control that was the missing element as the car suffered from broken steering arms that had to be replaced under warranty rather than lose customers or garner bad publicity they would take the broken cars in on trade for a replacement car rather than just repair the damage They designed an entirely new front axle with double wishbones to fix this issue but the Maisch brothers were running out of money and Banks were not extending anymore credit to them A small company such as Maico could not compete against the larger automobile manufacturers and Maico went out of the automobile business in 1958 but continued to manufacture motorcycles and scooters through 1986 Manufacturer Macio Werke GmbH Pfäffingen Tübingen Germany Model MC 500 Motor Heinkel 2 stroke Body Steel Years Built 1956 1957 No Cylinders 2 Chassis Tube No Produced 6301

  • 1962 Mazda R-360 Coupe
    with the entire Japanese car industry the development of Mazda then took off at truly breathtaking speed The first model in 1960 was the R 360 the number indicates the capacity a coupe that survived until 1970 In 1962 the slightly larger Carol available with 360 and 600 cc followed a car that was similar to the Ford Anglia and had a reverse angle rear window In 1964 a convertible complemented the series One of the reasons Mazda became known in Germany was because of its takeover of the Wankel rotary piston license in 1961 and is still faithfully using and developing this particular combustion engine technology today Mazda collaborates extensively with Ford is still making a Carol for the home market and has shown with its AZ 1 since 1992 that a coupe with folding doors does not have to be called SL that it does not have to come from Stuttgart and that it can still be beautiful despite being 130 inches in length As with other Japanese vehicles small cars opened Mazda s door into a higher class market Manufacturer Toyo Kogyo Co Hiroshima Japan Model R 360 Coupe Motor 4 stroke Body Monocoque Years Built 1960
