“The Goliath 1100 was a model line that included sedans, wagons and light trucks in the mid-’50s to early ’60s.  The “Express” was the light truck and car series. The company, Goliath Werke (part of Carl. F. W. Borgward GmbH., which included Lloyd Werke and Hansa Werke) produced many different types of automobiles, large trucks, and various other modes of transport, in addition to this little truck.  In 1961, under dubious circumstances the factory filed for bankruptcy and ceased operations.  Carl. F. W. Borgward died in 1963 from heart failure.

Goliath was a German car brand started in 1928 and which was part of the Borgward group. Goliath was based in  Bremen and specialized in three wheeler cars and trucks and medium sized cars.

The company Goliath-Werke Borgward & Co. was created by Carl F. W. Borgward and Wilhelm Tecklenburg in 1928. The first models were three-wheelers trucks derived from the Blitzkarren previously built by Borgward. The first passenger car was the Goliath Pioneer in 1931, which still had three wheels and a one-cylinder engine. Until 1934, 4000 of these small cars where produced in various types of body. The Pioneer was considered as a forerunner of the Hansa models 400 and 500.

From 1958, the Goliath 1100 models were sold under the brand Hansa, the Borgward group wanted to forget the two-stroke engine and three wheeler image.

Three years later, in 1961, the Borgward group collapsed.”
