Isabella’s cousin: 1958 Goliath Kombi 1100 Estate


The first impression we had of this car, once seen the (blurry) photo taken from the front end, was of a Borgward Isabella, then we found out that this is her cousin, built by the Borgward subsidiary, the Goliath-Werke Borgward & Co. This car appeared at the 1957 Geneva motor show and it was produced until 1958, when it was replaced by the Hansa 1100.


This car is said to have had only two owner from new, that should be the reason why it looks in such beautiful original conditions. Also it is said to have a little more than 55k kms and that the body is rock solid with the exception of the muffler (of course) but the seller has a lot of spare parts “Floating around”.


Interiors looks in exceptional shape and maybe they need only a deep cleaning and a good nutrient cream for the leather. The seller says that the engine (no photos of the engine bay, unfortunately) is a flathead four but it should be just a “flat four”. The only clearly missing trim on this car are the “Goliath” metal letters on the bonnet edge. Find it for sale here in Sanford, ME, with a starting price of $2,000 and no bids yet.
