Well the DVLA don't call it a Peel  ;D.  The do state the colour as cream but I would say it looks more like Daytona White.
Rob, what does AC stand for ?, Alternative Car, Andy Carter, Another Copy, Awful Crap  ;D
Well done Stuart, another major achievement, enjoy.

 Just wait til everyone see's what some of it is going to be made out of.   ;)  ;D  Remember that iconic quote from me earlier in the year:  "Dexion & Dulux works wonders"...

 Meanwhile, I know all of you are champing at the bit to see more pics & read all about it, but alas the very next day after "it" (Grant's correct, CYC 3C isn't a Peel on the DVLA...) arrived, I've been put on 14-hour days at work until at least the end of this week which is somewhat limiting playtime with the new toy, but here's a second pic to cast to the assembled crowds.  :)

I can see the dexion at the ready hanging up in the car port, are you going to but those big tyres on it as well? :D It looks pretty nice as it is. Your dad looks tickled pink too.

Animated Cyphus?

Alternating Construction sounds plausible as it would seem it is to metamorphose over time and thus requires a non defined name to suit. Might be a trike this week, a half track next month or a cyclemoter 6 month later. Why tie yourself down to one design like the concours type chappies. Could it be the Peel Dexion Estate along the lines of the Morry Minor Woody? Only time will tell and no gathering of unsuspecting Microcars will be safe from the attack of the Type 70 towed AC P50 if things work out OK.

How long before we see a stretched P50 to provide a little bit more leg room, or a 3 wheel drive all terain model.

I hope the rear number plate fitting is not indicitive of the general build quality!!

The torque of the drill moved the car during mounting. One of the hidden problems of lightweight machinery. It will be adjusted to horizontal via the suspension setting - Stuart carrys his wallet in the right pocket.

Stuart seems strangely resistant to my idea he should start a taxi service round Witney using his vehicles.

 Alas every vehicle I've ever owned has been only single-seaters. If I started a taxi business the only place the punters could sit would either be the roof or my lap! Indeed several of mine haven't even had roofs, so that leaves my lap.

 Actully, with some of the sorts round here, that's not a bad idea...   ;D
