COVENTRY-VICTOR MIDGET, FAMILY

2-seater sports, 3/4-seater, fabric coupé.

Seldom-encountered three-wheeler with the maker's own flat-twin engine, uncoupled brakes, Morgan-type two-speed chain transmission (though always with a reverse in the '30s), and quarter-elliptic springs. Specifications vary - some have front wheel brakes and/or dry-sump lubrication, while there's a choice of flathead or ohv engine, the latter of hemi-head configuration. Avon built the rare coupé body.
