A Morgan Pedal Car Mystery

Author: Luc Ryckaert Wednesday, 23 April 2014

Morgan Pedal Car

 I would like to present my latest find to the readers. Last November, I added this little beauty to my s collection. It is a scaled down Morgan Aero pedal car. According to the seller, it was build in England in the early seventies and I would like to find out more about the constructor. Is it a one off, or does anyone know of similar Morgans?

The 'Found in Vietnam' Bugatti Type 40

Vietnam Bugatti

Chrisso Rheault: "Here are two pictures of the type 40, the first as found in Saigon. The second shortly after restoration was finished. The license number, CD 601 is the original registration where CD stands for Cochin China, the classification of Vietnam as a French colony. My father and a friend had word of the car and his friend bought it, but he had already acquired a running type 57 and was about to be reposted so sold the 40 to my father. He kept the car until his death at which time the friend bought it from us. Some day I hope to get it back in the family (part of why I recently sold the T13 pictured on your website)."

I have three pictures of this car that belonged to my great grandfather, all of them side views. This is the best picture by far. What is it? thanks John

Another picture from my great grandfathers photo album. Chevrolet?

editor: we think your grandfather is shwoing his fordor Model T . We'll need an expert to say which year it is, but the painted radiator will help. 1925 ?

another mystery carAnother pic from my great grandfathers photo album. This one is probably real obvious to someone her but I don't know...

editor: Not so sure if this fine Coupe is a pre-war.... could be 1947-ish as well.

last mystery car
One last pic from my great grandfathers photo album. Not sure if this is prewar or not but the suicide doors make me think it could be. Sorry the picture quality is poor.

editor: Nice sunny snowy day. For sure pre-war this coupe, yet not too much to go on... the small side windows and sparewheel may proove to be helpful though.
