  1. Discussion thread - //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/45928-stylez-59-borgward-hansa-kombis-discussion/ Hi all, Discovered these on trademe a week or so ago, tried emailing the guy heaps of times with no reply. Figured he might have sold them but didn't give up. Managed to track him down through something he bought on trademe, luckily the guy still had his number. Went out to have a look and there was no way I could turn them down. They are 1959 borgward hansa 1100 kombi's , previously known as goliaths. The white one turns over, so should be a good starting point. It seems to be a bit rusty obviously, but they have been barn stored for somewhere around 15 years. They both seem to be complete which is great, advertised as one to restore and the other as a donor car as floor in red one is all but gone. The red wagon used to be the post wagon in Winton (small town near invercargill) some years ago, and still is red with a white roof. I'm not sure I've got the heart to pull a cool peice of history to peices, but work and costs may determine otherwise.... We shall see. Few photos as I'm yet to collect them. Not seen in photos : huge amount of parts, couple of gearboxes, spare head, motor parts chrome, lights, front axle, blah blah. Brilliant to have. The red one : What they look like in better shape : An interesting one built by Paul Bennet in AUS, not my cup of tea, but cool none the less. Plans are fairly undecided at the moment, I'd like to try and look through some newspaper records at the library and see if I can find a picture of the post wagon, I'm unsure if it ever had any other livery on it or just the red/white scheme. Depending on how bad the floor is and the rest of the rust is, there may be potential to restore it somewhat, even if only to display. Both are unfortunately de registered as you've probably assumed, so I'm not really looking forward to the re-vin process, but that's a long way off.
