Better known as cycle manufacturer, Philips, like Raleigh, recognised the potential of the moped as a natural extension of their product range. The first model was introduced during 1954 as a clip-on power unit and was followed in 1956 by the two speed P39 Gadabout and in 1959 by the single speed P40 Panda and the P50 Gadabout Deluxe with a three speed gearbox. This original, unrestored example is described on the registration documents as being a P50 and was offered with a Swansea V5 and a buff log book.
