Hemmings Find of the Day – 1959 NSU Prinz

Published in

Restored 1959 NSU Prinz for sale on From the seller’s description:

I have reached 5 toy cars and its time to liquidate one before I start on the next one. This car was an original Rust free California car I acquired about 3 Years ago. The car has undergone a very meticulous restoration. Only 1500 of these cars were imported into the US in 1959 and few remain. This is a German Microcar and is very rare. The car was 100 percent rust free and was taken down 100 percent to bare metal. I have a photo book of the restoration. The engine was disassembled/ all tolerances checked and all parts inspected. Everything was in great condition so the engine was reassemble and resealed. The Dynastart/Generator was rebuilt. It has a Upgraded Solex Carburetor jetted for this displacement. I have the original Bing Carburetor that has been rebuilt that comes with the car. But the car runs much better with the Solex. New Exhaust, and a hall effect electronic ignition system installed. This makes the engine idle much better as the cylinders fire at the same time. I have the original point set up that comes with the car. The original fuel pump has been rebuilt and is in place but we installed an electric fuel pump to get more consistent fuel pressure. The entire brake system was overhauled. Master cylinder/Wheel cylinders/ shoes/springs/ etc… All of the wiring has been gone through and all electric component function correctly. The paint is two stage that has been color sanded and buffed to a mirror finish. All chrome and all trim is either new/ Re-plated / or Polished. All of it is as new condition. New turn signal and tail light lenses. All rubber window seals and weatherstripping are new and direct from Germany. New hubcaps and beauty rings. A brand new set of correct Coker bias ply tires. This car is beautiful in person and garners looks everywhere its driven. It has about 500 test miles since the restoration and has been completely debugged. It is dependable and drives very well.
