Pretty much the whole spectrum of three wheeled vehicles 1885 to current in this presentation download.

Some with the single wheel at the right end innocent some Morgan smile

This 1961 Ford Gyron looks very 007 and Miss Moneypenny.

Really interesting!
I particularly liked the Framo Stromer. Great lines at the back.

I never realised there were so many. I loved those very long tiller steering arms.
I do also remember GWR having three wheeled road going tractor cabs to distribute goods from the siding at Goodrington in the 60s.

This 3 wheeler always intrigues me - as seen at the Caister Castle Motor Museum, Norfolk. It seems to defy gravity.

It's a Scott Sociable. Wikipedia notes that "Turning was dangerous at speed."

Yes I always look at that in awe and trepidation. It just doesn't seem right.

Splendid stuff. For those of us of a certain age, there is one obvious omission though.

Wikipedia - Scammell Mechanical Horse

I can remember these being used at Okehampton station in the 1960's. If you know where to look, there are lots about - in the form of a rear axle welded up and foxed to the trailer to form a cheap farm trailer.

I'd guess these would be Scammel Scarabs

It may be Sociable, but I wouldn't let the passenger jump in first
