What is this? nobel?
« on: July 31, 2012, 11:02:25 am »
Can anyone help me with this? I know it is a nobel, and i think it is a 1959. My dad has had it for years, and i recently inherited it. I was in contact with the nobel registry, and i was told it was possibly for an auto show.
thanks in advance,
Joel

H. Its a Nobel pickup. It wasnt very successful, I believe some were sold to holiday camps and alike for running folk around it.

Thanks for the fast reply, how many do you think were made? were they produced by Yorke Noble? any additional information or brochures or articles would be great.
Thanks again in advance.

Do you have any log book with your vehicle or a Registration No.?  Have you been in touch with Mike Ayriss (michael.ayriss@talktalk.net) who looks after the Nobel section of the Register of Unusual Microcars?  I know we have one or two of these models on the Register and it would interesting to know if this was one of them.  If it is not please let Alastair Lauchland have the details about the car that you have so that it may be Registered with us.  If you go on to the home page of our web site you will find details of how to do this.  Once you are you have a Registered car you will have access to our archives  and we may be able to introduce you to a fellow owner.  You will also find there is Nobel page in each issue of RUMCAR NEWS written by Mike Ayriss which gives information on all manner of Nobel variants. for instance the current issue has picture of Bambi, the South American version of your vehicle. There is a lot more to RUM CARS (The Register of Unusual Microcars) than the Forum!  Jean

Jonathan may be the expert resident expert on the Forum but Michael Ayriss should not be forgotton.  HE is the expert who so ably handles the Nobel section of Register of Unusual Microcars and has a Nobel page in each issue of RUMCAR NEWS giving history, technical information and spares availability.

Jonathan the Nob anorak is busy cutting the grass with a ride on mower and his MP3 player plugged into his head. We've got a lot of grass, so be patient. I won't tell him now, or the rest of the grass won't get done.         Nick,  his dad.

Where are you Joel, in UK or elsewhere ? I have a standard Nobel that gets used a few times each week. My sons car is more of a project, but if you've seen his site you'll know all about that.                 Nick.

Hey Joel,

  I vaguely remember having contact with you, if I remember you were in the USA?

The only details of surviving Nobel Pickups I know of are the following:

chassis 0027, in UK and chassis 0030 in UK aswell

That probably means that Mike Ayriss doesnt have your car on the register.

How many made? Not many, but I can;t tell for sure.

I am pretty sure tje bars on the back of your car have been modified. Each original picture of them seems to have different bars.

At least 5 have been built (not counting yours, because yours may be one from one of these pictures)

PS: The last picture is a Fuldamobil. However, it was the prototype fulda/nobel pickup sent to Peter York Noble to copy for the Nobels.

There was a Nobel 200 4-wheeler convertible advertised for sale in the Aug 10th 1961 issue of Motor Cycling by Two Strokes Ltd of Church Road, Stanmore. Only £99! Wonder if this might have been a pickup.

Who are the nobel registry? (I assumed this was Mike Ayriss) I think we should be told!

hmmm could have also been a sunroof car (I have only seen 1 original picture of one, but never seen anything mentionned in adverts!), but more likely one of the pickup things!

Yep,
Nobel Register = Mike Ayriss
Nobel Anorak = Jonathan  ;D

Dear Rusty Chrome

If you read Rumcar News, in almost every edition Mike Ayriss write a Nobel Register report.

Well worth a good read.

Dear Chris

I already said that! ??? Perhaps I'm missing something. rettus72 stated in his first post he is in contact with the Nobel Registry and Jean said he should also get in touch with Mike Ayriss as well.
