    Invacars were designed & built by AC, as in AC Cobra. There is a bit more to these little cars than meets the eye.

    Hubnut on YouTube (a motoring journalist) rescued a derelict one. Interesting to follow his videos on it.

    There used to be two versions of 3 wheelers in the 60's, one with a reverse gear & one without.
    You could drive the one without a reverse gear at 16.

    I think “Invalid” is probably one of those words we are not allowed to use anymore ?

    Now there were two highly regarded manufacturers, why get involved with that end of the market place. It was a bit derogatory to your reputation surely ? :eek:

    The Scootacar was far worse than that .... they had a tendency to fall over when cornering and as they only had one door, if that was the side you were resting on you were ****ed. No mobile phones then to call for help! :D:D
