Shelter

The Shelter was created in Amsterdam in 1954 by Arnold van der Goot.  At the time Van der Goot was at university and was looking for an engineering project when he decided to build a city pool car.  Manufacturing most of the parts himself over a period of two years Van der Goot had enough parts to build twenty vehicles, though only seven were ever built.  The Shelter was powered by a 228cc single cylinder engine that was also made by Van der Goot with connecting rods produced from standard gas pipes. The engine was situated at the rear of the car and could be removed in five minutes with the rear panel of the Shelter removed.  The 6ft 3” long body was made from sheet steel and the head lamp surrounds came from a local saucepan factory. Unfortunately the Shelter had serious problems with axles snapping and it  also had a tendency to catch fire.  Despite the early interest from the Netherlands Government these problems caused them to lose interest and the project was eventually abandoned,
