Your reference to the luggage capacity of your Morgan 3 Wheeler (Our Cars, 22 February) reminded me of my first car, a 1931 BSA three-wheeler purchased for £50 in about 1970.
This tried to look like a ‘normal’ car by having the air-cooled V-twin engine under a bonnet and a boat tail with what was probably a slightly larger boot than that of your Morgan.
Novelties included front-wheel drive, by fabric universal joints, and an exciting control layout. Not only was the throttle pedal between the clutch and brake, but the gearlever was located between the driver’s legs!
The petrol tank was located under the bonnet, against the scuttle, with gravity feed. On more than one occasion when low on fuel, I had to reverse up the steep hill between Sidmouth and Otterton to keep the engine supplied. Oh, and the windscreen wiper was operated by a hand lever inside the screen. Modern motorists don’t know what they have! Peter Taylor via email
