Perez Rivero

In 1961 Paulino Pérez Rivero built a three-wheeled microcar to travel to work in Santander, some 25km from his home. Based on a the rear section of a 1954 Vespa, it was fitted with a front axle from a Fiat Balilla, drum brakes from an Iso motorcycle and numerous other home-made and modified parts.

Bodywork was constructed from welded sheet steel, with a gull-wing door on the right-hand side. The windows were perspex and were constructed in a specialist workshop. The roof was of plastic allowing it to convertible when weather permitted. The body was painted metallic gray and it had a spare tyre mounted at the rear.

The attractive and versatile machine survived numerous journeys on the mostly gravel roads of the day.
