"The only vehicle ever to have been designed and mass-produced in New Zealand, the Trekka was the product of increasingly restrictive government regulation and the DIY ingenuity of motor-industry rough diamond Noel Turner." - - Cover flap.
The Trekka: A utility vehicle for the New Zealand market
The Trekka is the only vehicle designed, built, and mass-produced in New Zealand using an imported Škoda Chassis from Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic and Slovakia). The idea was to locally produce an affordable vehicle in response to the highly regulated import policies pursued by New Zealand Governments since the early 1950s, which made new cars scarce and expensive.
