I don't think that is it Rob. 
The one behind the tram has two headlights - looking a bit like a Messerschmitt

Looking closer at your picture I see it has an L plate on the front as the one in Stuarts book also the '2 headlights' look like one single in the middle of the bonnet and 2 sidelights as Stuarts pic. The front bumper is the same, as is the windscreen and the cover over the rear spoked wheel.

I agree with you Rob. Thanks for the explanation.   I can see it now.

I have posted a reply on Facebook - 'Three Wheelers' with a link to eBay and Stuarts book on sale.  Hopefully he will get a few more sales.  Great work Stuart.

Oh yes. Forgot about that edition. I think a disability museum in USA got in touch with Stuart to have the booklet professionally updated and published for them to sell.

Conceived in UK, published in USA, sold in Australia. Amazing!

Reflects what happens to so many of our creative initiatives. Indeed it even seems IC are more valued abroad than here despite the fact most of the rest of the world never had them! So now we not export our ideas but our heritage as well. It will end in tears before bedtime you know.
