WARTBURG 353/KNIGHT

4-door saloon, estate car.

New four-light body on 312 chassis; floor change for UK market, and all-synchro 'box and estates from late '67. UK imports stopped 1974, but stockpiles kept sales going for at least a year. Lots of inclusive equipment, and panels detach for quick replacement, but handling and brakes are awful and 25pmg is the norm. From 1988 to 1991 manufactured with 1.3-litre VW Golf engine.
