Founded in 1883, Hans Glas GmbH in Dingolfing was originally a German agricultural machinery and later motor vehicle manufacturer.
When demand for agricultural machinery declined in the 1940s, the company was forced to reorient itself and in July 1951 Glas introduced the Goggo scooter with a 123 cc two-stroke engine from ILO-Motorenwerke. In 1956, Glas stopped building motor scooters after the economic basis for car manufacturing was solidified and the two-wheeler boom came to an end.
Following the success of the Goggomobil, Hans Glas introduced the 1700 to the public in 1964 as a sporty mid-size passenger car. The body, designed by Pietro Frua, met the spirit of the times with its elegant and sporty but not obtrusive lines.
This offered Glas 1700 GT shows up in very good condition. The original light blue colour shines and makes it a pleasure to look at this GT.
The chassis had been repainted in its original factory colour and well welded on some spots, floors had been resealed and all parts below, like axles, brakes, etc. do their job without backlash. The engine had been rebuilt, starts right up and runs smoothly.
Impressions all over the car show that the mileage of 73.000km fit to the quite authentic original and well taken care of interieur, but are not proven.
