SOLD: A charming little microcar, sympathetically restored and enthusiast owned, desirable 198cc.

198cc four-stroke engine, 4-Speed transmission with reverse gear, Canvas sunshine-roof, Tartan cloth upholstery with cushion, Footwell carpet, Rear bench seat, Wing mirrors, Petrol tap, Spare wheel, Jack, Owners manual, Workshop manual.

This eye-catching little car presents beautifully in a gleaming coat of red, arguably one of the most desirable Trojan colours. The current owner (of 10 years) has recently treated her cherished Bubbly to a full body repaint along with all new windows and rubbers. The car looks stunning, not overly restored but to an excellent standard throughout. What really sets this example apart is the level of originality with most parts having been either restored, re-commissioned or replaced with period-correct items only.

The cabin space is particularly charming; open the large front door and take a step back in time. The seats have been re-trimmed in original-style tartan cloth and so present in excellent condition front and rear. Better still, all of the original features still appear in first-rate order, with only some expected light patina in a few commonly worn areas, namely to the gear shift gate and pedals. Carpet has been fitted in the footwells and improved sound deadening has also been installed behind the scenes.

The Trojan sports a 10hp single-cylinder four-stroke engine mounted beneath the rear bench, this example being the more desirable and reliable 198cc unit. With a couple of pumps of the accelerator she fires into life quickly and idles up to temperature without fuss. Powered is transferred to the rear wheel via a four-speed manual gearbox, which operates just as it should.

The car sits on three ten-inch steel wheels, with a spare mounted beneath the front seats. They are shod in a new set of Trelleborg tyres boasting a tread pattern similar to original specification. The brakes perform well on test having been refurbished very few miles ago.

This wonderful little Trojan was built in Croydon and first registered in 1962. It has seen just four previous keepers with the current owner having purchased it from a member of the Heinkel Trojan Club way back in 2009. The car proved to be a good solid example in fine mechanical condition having been regularly serviced throughout its life. But, while the body and floor pan was sound, the original paintwork was a little scruffy and the perspex windows were also showing their age. Some light re-commissioning was then carried out costing around £5k overall. This work included having the interior re-trimmed, replacing the bumpers, replacing the fuel tank, fitting a new exhaust, and refurbishing the brakes, etc.

The current owner has a long history with Trojan three-wheelers and has been involved with them since leaving school. At age 17 her first car was a Trojan, and her father was also an Honorary Engineer for the Heinkel Trojan Club. Restoring Bubbly was certainly a labour of love but unfortunately, due to unforeseen personal circumstances, all major work on the car had to be put on hold for a while.

Pleasingly the restoration has now been completed, with the most recent invoice totaling more than £6,150 to include a full repaint in the correct Trojan red colour. Brand new windows were also fitted along with all new rubber seals, as sourced from the HT Club. A further £1,125 was spent on additional parts from the HT Club bringing the total recent expenditure to an eye-watering £7,275.

The finished product is what you see here, a shining example of a rare and unappreciated piece of automotive history. The paperwork is complete with an original Trojan 200 Owners Manual, Workshop Manual, and stacks of period documentation and magazines. There is also a raft of past MOT certificates and invoices from the HT Club, along with tax discs dating back to 1996. A hand-written log details the maintenance carried out under current ownership.
