RUSSON MINICAR

Open 3-seater.

Roomy little dachshund of a car with twin-tube frame, tiny wheels, all-coil independent springing, rod-and-cable brakes, and three-speed motorbike-type 'box; rear-mounted Excelsior 'twin' engine, and ash-framed alloy body. Not unpleasing looks and the makers claimed 50mph and 65mpg. Alas it cost as much as a Ford Anglia new, though if you found one it'd probably come a lot cheaper today.
