Ultra-rare BSA 'Family Four' Vee Twin Trike that was fully restored in 2009.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • This car has benefited from a bare chassis restoration that was completed in 2009 and has travelled only a nominal mileage since
  • At its introduction in 1929, the BSA trike was the first popular-priced car in the world to offer independent front suspension and front-wheel drive
  • The model designation 'Family Four' refers to the seating arrangement within the skiff style coachwork of two seats for adults and two for young infants
  • It is powered by a Hotchkiss designed OHV air-cooled, vee twin engine of 1021cc
  • The restoration retained all of the major components that were original to the car including wings, bonnet, front grille surround, windscreen, dashboard, engine, clutch, gearbox, chassis and suspension components
  • All major components were overhauled which included a rebuilt engine and new clutch
  • The coachwork is by Carbodies of Coventry and the maker's plate is affixed to the scuttle. The body was completely rebuilt using new ash framework as required although 40% of it is original. All the flooring was new as was the exterior wood panelling which is covered with durable Everflex fabric
  • Interior trim is finished to a high standard with the seating being upholstered in period-correct Rexene
