Vehicle Description

A garage find – restorers wanted!

Here we have a rare Prinz 3 on sale for you. A cute, chubby, pretty little car that will definitely be an eye-catcher, once it’s restored.

The interior has significant traces of use and aging, but the seats are original and remarkably well preserved. The gearbox is missing, the 2-cylinder rear engine has not been tested. Since the NSU had been parked over the past 20 years, unmoved, in a dry garage, there is a lot to be done for sure. On the other hand, here’s a lot of good original substance to work with.

This little sweetie deserves to be done up really nicely. Who’s got the heart to do it?


Drive the “Prinz” and you are king – 50s charm at its best

Just 3.15 meters long, barely more than 500 kg net weight, 20 hp from 600 cc, two cylinders, just over 100 km / h top-speed – but room for four people who, according to the contemporary marketing slogan, felt like kings: That was the NSU Prinz, as presented at the IAA 1957 for the first time.

The rounded window in the rear section gave away that NSU had originally planned a three-wheeled vehicle in the manner of a cabin scooter, before they switched over to the more modern four-wheel design. The transmission in the spartan equipped Prinz I was not synchronized. From 1959, the Prinz II featured a synchronized four-speed transmission, pivoting triangular windows in the front doors and reclining seats. Also starting in 1959, the Prinz 30 became available, providing 30 hp owing to the higher compression and a larger carburetor, sufficient for a speed of 118 km/h. The small engines in the rear were loud, but durable and economical. From this series of “little prince” of Neckarsulm, a total of 94,549 vehicles were built.
