1968 saw the start of what was hoped would be a major export drive, as the first of around 46 Trekkas were shipped to Australia.
Despite Government-level negotiations securing duty-free entry for the Trekka, a lack of expertise in marketing and managing a distant market turned it into a flop.
A surprising number have survived. Several are known to exist in Victoria and
New South Wales. In Western Australia, engineer and Skoda restorer Ray Petty has located 6, and has fully restored one.
A handful were shipped to various Pacific Islands, but it was Indonesia which held the greatest hope. A complicated deal was struck to export the Trekka in kit form, for assembly in Indonesia. 100 kits were shipped in 1971. Payment proved problematic and it appears fewer than one third were built and sold.
The deal was finally buried in 1973.
