A mid-sized family car, the Wartburg 353 was the successor to the Wartburg 311 and evolved out of the existing production facility of BMW in the newly formed East Germany (the factory was later renamed as EMW).
This 1.0 litre, 2-stroke engine car was so simple to maintain that a slogan was formed “like a car, yet simple like a motorcycle”. This model did became popular in several Eastern bloc countries and was also exported to South Africa.
It’s pick-up version was known as Wartburg 353 Trans.
