The Werthers Car

It appears the Werthers Original car is a Goggomobil as Old Vic suggested, but he had never seen one with a grille.
This worn example is from

And this pristine one from
I am guessing the false grille was either an up market model or a "dress-up" accessory.

Well, it looks as if I was sort of right. As I said, I don't remember ever seeing one with a grille, which is obviously a dummy as the Goggo was rear-engined. Come to think of it, though, the sports coupe model had a dummy grille as standard although it looked nothing like that one, it was a small heart-shaped one.
