A brand of the Bremen, Germany-based company Borgward, Lloyd Motoren Werke GMBH sold a bunch of small, cheap cars after the war including this 400 cc two-stroke family wagon/van, the LT 500 “Six Seater passenger car.”


I’ll translate the text above:

The Lloyd LT 500 carries six people comfortably. The ideal carrier vehicle for hotels and vacation resorts. The right car for the drive to work. Especially good weight distribution and a low center of gravity work together with front-wheel drive to create a great driving experience. Its powerful 400 cc two-stroke motor can be driven at full throttle without issue, and because of air cooling, maintenance free in the winter.
