Not in touch myself but someone must have that info if he is not viewing this forum himself. I assume they sold Lloyd 400s in Australia. They ended up assembling Alexanders I think.

I thought John Meadows is in touch with him, isn't Fred the Zeta man in Oz.

surely thats when the forums at its best. helping solve real " unusual microcar " queries . sorry folks who own Isettas, Schmitts , Heinkels et al. but there arent really many things you dont  know about your cars. i will follow up those leads .

thanks very much for the help as always folks  :)

It is great to help, but I have been told you should be careful about putting undisguised email addresses on a forum in case they get spotted by a "spam bot" which then sends the poor addressee a load of junk advertising emails, so something like: johnsmith at hotmail dot co dot uk  will help to throw those horrible spam robots off the scent.

I've just brought over a Lloyd LP 400 from Germany. It came with a nice little handbook which I can translate from German. Would that help you?

Just spotted this: http://cgi.eBay.co.UK/Lloyd-Classic-Car-Very-Rare-Complete-/120678144240?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item1c18fa58f0#ht_500wt_938

This listing is for a Lloyd LP400s which incidentally is in the UK and remains unsold, so maybe the owner has some beneficial info.

how weird ! have messaged the seller with a couple of questions . dont let that hold anyone from bidding . its VERY rare in this country - i would have said a one off ! until you find the other message from a new member saying he's just imported one . they arent the same car are they Wilksie ? Would of course really appreciate a translated hand book and a look at your car wilksie- where are you . oh and by the way welcome to the site

the auction finishes at 10.30 tonight and its £ 350 !!
