The BSA Three-wheeler was introduced in 1929. The company no doubt examined all the layout permutations when they decided to enter the light car/ three wheeler market, which was then dominated by the Morgan three-wheeler.
Two wheels at the front was the popular configuration at that time, and front wheel drive had the distinct advantage of an easily detachable rear wheel with no oily chains. The BSA also boasted innovations such as a reverse gear, electric start and full weather protection. Three-wheel cars enjoyed a lower rate of tax and annual licence fee in Britain, and the BSA was a popular car throughout the 1930s.

BSA has been one of my favourite vehicle manufacturers for over 40 years, and I particularly like the BSA Three-wheeler car of the 1930s. So this wood-bodied pedal car appealed to me. Like all pedal cars, it’s not an exact replica of the full-size car, but there are enough design similarities to see the builder’s intention. I believe it was made in the 1960s as a one-off. It’s well built, to a professional standard, and is ready to drive.
