Yes, had a few of these I think. Not sure which model, but I would stab at Two because of the bumpers.

Seems reasonable.
If I didn't have so much trouble in magnifying, I should have guessed earlier, as I have One. ::)

Great little cars, if you can find one. But another vehicle that ticks all the Microcar boxes, but historically was never really a Microcar, fitting with the Fiat 500 series as being perhaps to successful. Though the P1/2/3 were more accepted as thier styling is bubblesque.

Now they are in. With the move to the larger cars offering more performance the Prinz has finally seen its prices rise to match its position of a very good choice in class, even if it is the less interestingly styled P4. For me the best Microcar/Light car of the lot is the Sport Prinz, bringing styling to a sounds set of underpinning. The issue is rust. Though the Bianchina Cabriolet offers much too, but for a lot more money and less performance.
