Three-Wheeled Midget Car Built in Spare Time (Nov, 1938)

Three-Wheeled Midget Car Built in Spare Time
In his spare time, stretched over eighteen months, a Californian built a three-wheeled midget automobile that has traveled sixty-eight miles an hour. It has a front wheel drive and rear wheel steering, and covers as much as forty to forty-two miles per gallon. There are buttons on the windshield for attaching a top.

    That really caught my eye. You wouldn’t happen to have the complete how-to article, would you? A homebuilt micro-car would be a fun project.

    Of course, if the article is still under copyright, I understand.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen any plans on how to build this one. Sorry.

    Ah well. The photos are still good, and give me some ideas. :)

    If you’re looking for plans there is at least one set in the Popular Mechanics do-it-yourself encyclopedia. I got my set at a garage sale but I see them in used bookstores all the time
