In 1951, Hans Glas entered the motor vehicle field with the Goggo motor scooter. It soon became apparent that there was a demand for inexpensive cars in the new Federal Republic of Germany. In the spring of 1955, the first Goggomobil left the factory at Dingolfing. Over the four years that followed, the company would produce more than 100,000 tiny coupes and sedans. They were small vehicles powered by a two-cylinder two-stroke engine. Three displacement sizes were available: 247, 296 and 395cc. By 1958, a front-mounted, four-stroke twin of 548cc and 700cc was introduced.

When production ceased in June of 1969, 280,739 vehicles had been built, including 66,511 coupes with engines of varying capacity. From 1962 to 1966, a Spanish factory, Munguia Industrial SA of Bilbao, built Goggomobil cars and vans. Spanish versions were different from those produced in Germany. About 5,000 vehicles were produced in Spain.

This Goggomobil TS 250 was delivered new on July 2, 1966 in the town of Moers in Western Germany. The car remained in that general area until 2001, at which point it was imported to California. In 2013, the car was treated to a sympathetic restoration. The odometer currently shows 36,628km.

Power is from a 250cc engine and a 4-speed manual gearbox.
