The 2019 NEC Classic Motor Show

Once again we joined our friends in the Microcar world with our own display at the NEC Classic Motor Show.

Amongst the gems in our display, perhaps the most unusual was the pick-up version of the Nobel 200. This design was first manufactured as a modified version of the Fuldamobil S6 in Germany in 1956. It found few takers, but the design found favour with York Noble, when he took out a licence to sell and manufacture Fuldamobil vehicles worldwide.

The pick-up was announced for the British market in 1958 as a do-it-yourself van, which would be sold in kit form for just over £150 or fully built for £269. The vehicle was renamed the Nobel 200 Vicky to broaden its appeal. The idea behind offering the vehicles in kit form was to reduce the amount of tax payable and thus reduce the purchase price, but it quickly became apparent that the taxman wasn’t in favour of such enterprise, the optimistic purchase price quickly escalated and the merits of delivering kits rather than complete cars diminished.

From February 1959, the Nobel 200 saloon was built in Northern Ireland. Plans to produce the pick-up remained frozen until August that year when an agreement was reached with the Fairey Aviation Company to produce this model in Stockport. By the time production commenced, the Nobel company was in severe difficulties and the pick-ups were never sold on the open market. The number produced is unknown, but was certainly less than 100 and this is one of less than a handful of survivors.
