We have recently found an example of a Hippigrün Spring Edition 1970 advertised for sale in Austria. Alerted by viewing it and the supporting paperwork showing that it was imported in April 1970 led to our discovery of contemporary newspaper advertisements evidencing all three Pop colours were included in the very limited importation into Austria of 50 cars. Reportedly these cars were available as 1500cc, too.
