Three Wheel Sports Car

This is model № 4.14 from the 1959 set 3a manual. This was the first set of Meccano I was given as a child (not this actual set — the original has long since lost its identity and been swallowed up within our main collection).

The car is fairly easy to put together although it suffers from all the usual small set compromises and ‘artistic licence’ of the manual writers. I always liked this model but felt that a bush wheel used as a steering wheel was one compromise to far. The extra part in this model is therefore a steering wheel, a part I did not have in the early sixties.
