The Goliath works, founded by Carl Borgward in Bremen, resumed production after World War II. The Goliath Goli truck was manufactured from 1955 to 1961. It was the successor to the GD750 three-wheeler that went into production in 1949. Compared with this vehicle, it had an all-steel cab with room for two and imitation leather seats. The Goli came as a platform truck or van and sold for around DM 4,000. It was primarily used for commercial purposes since it was capable of conveying loads of around one ton on its almost 4-square-meter flatbed body. Compared with its biggest competitor, the Tempo, the Goliath’s advantage was its rear-wheel drive. The disadvantage of this threewheeled vehicle was its tendency to tip over easily in curves.
