Ha ha thanks for the reply , unfortunately Dad sold it about 1965 to Buy a faster and more competitive Mini Cooper for sprints & Hillclimbs. Yes it probably was (or is ) based on an Austin 7 ! Hopefully ,IS still out there somewhere.
Theres 4 pics in the Album ,heres another for now.

Floyd, That is a fantastic link for those of us of that era. Where can I get a Pop for 10 like I did in the eary 60's? Just dreaming, the older I get the less sophisticated I want to be.
