Topps World on Wheels: Borgward Hansa

Topps World on Wheels trading card: Borgward Hansa

Digging back through the shoebox of Topps World on Wheels trading cards. This time: Borgward Hansa.

From the card’s reverse:

Horsepower: 52

This German car is one of the most recent entries into the sports car field. A commercial car by the same firm is the smallest production car to offer an automatic transmission. In addition to these cars, the Borgward factory has also produced three-wheeled trucks! Hansa passenger models are not low-cost transportation, but quality cars of moderate size.

This might be an early attempt at convincing American car-fans that small does not equal cheap and inferior.
