Lot 170: Peel P50

Fine Motor cars incl. The Jaguar Legend, Coys (14 July 2012)

The Peel P50 is a three-wheeled microcar originally manufactured from 1962 to 1965 by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man. It currently holds the record for the smallest automobile to go into production. Designed as a city car, it was advertised as capable of seating one adult and a shopping bag. The vehicle's only door was on its left side and equipment included a single windscreen wiper and only one headlight. Standard colors were Daytona White, Dragon Red and Dark Blue. The 1963 model retailed for 199 when new (about 1,400 in 2010, or $2,200 USD). Only 50 of them were produced and only 27 of them are known to be still in existence. This model offered in red, may well hold the record for endurance having completed a 240 mile round trip to a microcar meeting in one day and having to navigate through London in the process. A great opportunity for any discerning collector/investor.
