In 1993 I made my own convertible from East-German
made Wartburg 353W
sedan, model 1982. It took me a lot of work and a small sum of money, but here
it is! It has 2 stroke 3 cylinder engine, separate body and chassis. That project
was very interesting, I learned a lot of welding and technique in general. Even
though there are very few VERY warm days during the summer in Finland, it is
still nice to have a convertible! Actually it is a 2D Roadster by the type title
now - used to be 4D sedan.
Here is my Wartburg 1.3. Frank Reiher from Berlin organized this for me.
It is model 1990 and has less than 13000 kilometers on it! Here it is still
in Germany by the previous owner's house. Actually this is the only Wartburg
1.3 in Finland!
