Australian Microcar: 1959 Goggomobil Dart (Buckle Motors, Sydney)

I cannot express what a thrill it was for me to see this at the 2013 Hotrod Nationals on Australia''s Gold Coast during my visit to see family. It was selling out as a promotions model but I guess that''s a small price to pay to be able to see this Australian classic.
This Dart Microcar was built in 1959. It has a 397cc inline 2 engine.
