Scootacar

The Scootacar was first manufactured in 1958 by the Hunslett Engineering Company of Leeds (UK). The vehicle was created by Henry Brown who had designed the Scootacar around the body of an occupant sitting astride the engine. The body was made from fibreglass and attached to a steel chassis that included a steel floor pan.  The vehicle was advertised as having a “Car-sized door” and so access in and out of the Scootacar involved no crouching as was needed in other 3-wheelers of the period.  There were three versions; the Mk 1, which was powered by a Villiers 197cc air-cooled engine. In this version the driver sat astride the engine as on a motorcycle. In the Mk2 a new body was designed that included and a car type chair for the rear passenger which was offset at 45 degrees.  The Mk 3 was powered by a larger twin-cylinder 324cc Villiers engine. Manufacture ceased in 1965.
