  • Description

    THE LAST MAJOR OBSTACLE HAS BEEN REMOVED TO THE PRODUCTION IN MEXICO OF THE CARS OF WEST GERMANY'S BANKRUPT BORGWARD CONCERN. AN IMPORT LICENSE WAS RECENTLY GRANTED TO THE MEXICAN GROUP 'IMPULSORA MEXICANA AUTOMOTRIZ', WHO ARE SAID TO HAVE PAID ABOUT GBP1.3 MILLION FOR THE BORGWARD MACHINERY.

    FILM TAKEN IN BREMEN YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) SHOWS MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT BEING CRATED AT THE OLD BORGWARD FACTORY AND LOADED AT THE DOCKS FOR SHIPMENT TO MEXICO. THE FIRST CONSIGNMENT IS EXPECTED TO LEAVE WITHIN A FEW DAYS.

    A SPOKESMAN FOR IMPULSORA HAS STATED THAT BORGWARD CARS WILL BE BUILT IN A FACTORY IN MEXICO CITY AT A RATE OF ABOUT 15,000 - 20,000 A YEAR. THE MAJORITY WILL BE OF THE 11/2-LITRE BORGWARD ISABELLA TYPE, THE REST THE BORGWARD P100 - A 6-CYLINDER LUXURY SALOON WITH PNEUMATIC SUSPENSION.

    THE MEXICAN PURCHASERS BELIEVE, DESPITE THE TECHNICAL PROBLEMS INVOLVED, THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE TO START PRODUCTION LATE THIS YEAR OR EARLY IN 1964.
