The Heinkel bubble car was produced between the 1950′s and 1960′s. It was part of a growing trend that captured the attention of Europe. The reason for this was the exceptionally low operating cost of this vehicle. It was also created with a single wheel in the rear to take advantage of the motor laws in Britain. These laws allowed the car to be licensed, and tagged as a motorcycle. This caused the taxes to be extremely low and in this day and age who doesn’t want low taxes. Therefore with the gas prices being so high, it’s no wonder the owner wanted to get his 1957 Heinkel out of his garage and into his driveway with a restoration from FantomWorks.
