1968 Glas 1304CL

I’ve slotted this car into the following categories of “never seen one” and “didn’t know existed.” While Glas is a rather obscure marque to some, I was well aware of the microcars and GT series of sports coupes they produced before being taken over by BMW in the 1960s. But this 1304CL for sale near Hanover, Germany left me scratching my head. After doing some research, I found out that the car we see here, the 1304CL, was a derivative of an earlier variant, the 1004 range, with the CL denoting “Combi Limousine.” Liftgates were still rather uncommon in the 1960s, but it wasn’t enough to interest customers. However, this car did survive for a bit after Glas was absorbed by BMW. It was also an inspiration for a later and much more loved variant of the 2002, the Touring.
