Within the mid-Nineteen Fifties, Harry Brown’s Rodley 750, a small automotive he had designed, was a disastrous flop as a result of its JAP engine would overheat and burst into flames. It was thought-about one of many worst automobiles of its time. Nonetheless, undeterred, Harry returned a yr later with a vengeance and created one in every of Britain’s most iconic and beloved microcars: the Scootacar.
The Scootacar, formally named so due to its hybrid nature of scooter and automotive, has been nicknamed the “phone sales space” by folks due to its one and a half meter peak and pink paint job. A bike-like steering wheel solely added to that connection.
Manufacturing of the Scootacar ceased in 1964, with solely round 1000 items ever being made.
