** Final Price Reduction **

Lowering price to a firesale level of $6. 00 (initially listed at $10. 00)

I need to determine by Monday whether I am selling my NSU or taking it with me back to the UK as my movers need to confirm the booking of shipping containers for either just my household items or household plus car. If it doesn't sell at this bargain price I will take it with me.

Ridiculously low price for what is an extremely low mileage. original condition and unusual vehicle. It is not perfect and as noted has not previously been registered for or used in the US but it runs and drives and would not take much effort at all to get it back in absolute tip-top condition.

1972 NSU Prinz 4L in excellent original condition with a genuine 16. 65 miles from new.

This car has been mostly unused for several years and is not currently registered for use on US roads.

I have owned this Prinz since 1987 when I bought it (in the UK) from the granddaughter of it's original elderly owner. who had recently passed away. I was an active member of the British NSU Owners Club for some years. The car had been well known to the club before I bought it and I continued to use it for club events and shows around England and Scotland.

I moved to the US some years ago and had it shipped over here intending to get it registered for use in the US and to find a US NSU owners club. However. family and professional obligations took precedence and this has not happened. Now I am heading back to the UK and it looks as though shipping it back with me may be prohibitively expensive so I am reluctantly offering it for sale. It has not been run much during it's time here. although has had the occasional outing on private roads from time to time. It had new brake lines and all fluids replaced very few miles ago and for it's age is in terrific condition with gleaming paint and bright work. as you would expect from a genuine 16K mile car. It has been garaged from new and I had the underside fully protected with Ziebert undercoating around 25 years ago. As far as I can tell there is no rust whatsoever anywhere on the bodywork or underside of the vehicle.

All I know of that it needs to get it road worthy is replacement of a small bushing that sits in a channel guide through which a connecting rod runs underneath the car. connecting the bottom of the gear stick to the transmission. The bushing has perished such that the connecting rod sits lower in the aperture than it should and because of that misalignment it will only go into first and second gears - the transmission itself is fine. it's just the alignment of the connecting rod that needs to be addressed but I have not sourced an appropriate bushing to replace the perished one. It would probably benefit from new tires also. Additionally. the bright waist band trim on the driver's side rear quarter panel was damaged some years ago and should be replaced if the car were to be returned to show condition. The rear one on the passenger side is in better condition but would also benefit from replacement if the car was to be used for shows / concourse purposes.

Otherwise. it should need very little attention in order to once again become a show car or a first rate classic driver. Having owned it for close to 30 years. I would love to take it back to the UK with me but the costs for shipping etc. are not inconsequential so I am open to selling it.  If I do sell it. I hope it will be purchased by a serious NSU / Collector Car enthusiast who will give it the new lease on life and regular use that it richly deserves.

Feel free to email me or post questions and I will respond as quickly as possible.

I had one of these cars in the seventies. And would like to buy one for old times sake. Your car is the best I have seen on the internet. Would like to know cost involved in shipping to uk

from David Johnston, dated 21 july 2017
I have just noticed your advert and although living in Northern Ireland would be interested in your NSU Prinz. Is it still for sale and how much is it to transport to uk?
