1958 David Convertible

Lot No. 467

Auctioned on Saturday, March 17, 2012

Sold for $ 25,300

This David is truly an original, clean-sheet-of-paper design; it featured a motor mounted behind, and turning with, the front wheel, which was in turn suspended on a three-quarter-elliptic leaf spring. The gear lever, working in a huge H-slot in the dash, selected the gears via fingers running through the middle of the front kingpin. The large steering wheel turned a large, primitive open crown-and-pinion via a constant-velocity joint. The rear brake levers and cables were external. Only 60 Davids were built, and there are few survivors. The Spanish-made micro car weighs 473 pounds, has a 10-hp electric-start engine and three-speed transmission with reverse and manages a top speed of 42 mph.
