Allard Microcars

Allard: Clipper 3-Wheeler

A rather bizarre model was the 1953 Allard Clipper that was hoped would cash in on the microcar market. This tiny car with glass fibre body was powered by a rear mounted 346 cc Villiers twin cylinder motorcycle engine and claimed to seat three people abreast with room for two children in an optional dickey seat.

About 20 were made.

The machine was marketed by David Gottlieb, who had previously created the Cymota cyclemotor of 1950-1952.
