1956-1965 HEINKEL/TROJAN Cabin Cruiser/200 specifications

1956-1965 HEINKEL/TROJAN Cabin Cruiser/200 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The archetypal ‘Bubble Car’, the Heinkel was also produced in the UK by Trojan from 1961 as the Cabin Cruiser. Given its 197cc engine, cruiser was hardly an apt title for this economy special. As bubble cars go, the Heinkel was certainly an improvement over the original BMW – it had space (just) for four people, was lighter, and could cruise happily at up to 50mph. Survival rate of these cars is exceptionally high, and that is down simply to their great build quality – and there’s excellent club and specialist support.
