1960 Nobel 200



1960 Nobel 200

To replace the discontinued Heinkel in 1958, UK distributors Noble Motors asked an associated company, York Noble Industries, to find a suitable car. This took the form of the German Fuldamobil S-7, for which a license was obtained. Flamboyant Company Director York Noble (often misspelled as the same as the car) assembled a group of sub-contractors to build it, including the Bristol Aeroplane Company, Rubery Owen, Sachs, and local suppliers for the smaller parts, with assembly performed by aircraft and shipbuilders Short Brothers and Harland of Belfast. Noble appointed the newspaper-worthy ex-Princess of Iran, Soraya, as co-director. Even the Fuldamobil directors were astonished at the amount of publicity “their” car generated.!!

This Nobel 200 tricycle has been in storage since 1997 and comes complete with an early 'Buff log book' issued in 1974. 

It would appear the Noble has been residing in the York area for all its life and comes complete with a modern V5 issued in 2005.

The vendor states that the Noble 'will start and run'.

A little internet research shows a poor conditioned example changing hands in Sotherby's for $6,900 and a further similar car achieving $10,350.
