Forgotten Kit Classic: 1973 Bremen Creighton

This next car is a bit of a puzzle to me -- it looks like the Bremen Mini Mark, which was a VW Type 1 Beetle based kit car that combined the aerodynamics of a 1930s classic with the reliability of the VW chassis...but it appears to have a front engine Chevy I don't know what I'm looking at.  There is an internet reference to a Ford Pinto based Bremen kit, but I can't find much detail on that other than a few pictures on a slightly abandoned website. Ohhh...I just found a German Wikipedia page that says this is the Bremen Creighton.  Find this 1973 Bremen Creighton offered for $5500 in Swansea, MA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

I still don't know what this is. Do you? Comments below.


  1. Perfect if you want to stand out from the crowd.

  2. SSR concept idea a few years earlier … although when I think of kit car "classics" I tend to think of Lotus 7's or Meyers Manx

  3. Looks like a Siata Spring, except with a SBC instead of an 850cc Fiat.

    In the unlikely event that you pulled up at the stoplight with someone who knew what a Siata Spring was, you could give them quite a surprise.

    If only they made a car that looked like the Siata 208 rather than the ugliest Siata of all.

  4. What's hiding under the brown tarp......lmao....

    1. I was wondering the same. Seems to also have a for sale sign, or maybe only the tarp is for sale....

    2. I bet that this is under the tarp

    3. HC think your right not a fan of either

    4. Too bad the V-8 wasn't in the vehicle under the tarp. GT Invader looks good but not a big fan of a VW engine in a fast looking car. The Bremen would have a pretty amazing power to weight ratio even with a 307 in it, people would expect a VW mill in it. Surprise...
