1950 Fend Flitzer 101
The Fend Flitzer was a three-wheeled invalid carriage designed and built by Fritz Fend. The Flitzer established many of the basic concepts on which Fend's later Messerschmitt Kabinenroller microcars were developed.
Mid 60s GM.
Quite a resemblance between the yellow Mercury bodied T and this Aries cyclecar.
100 years of Amilcar being celebrated at montlhery next march. I cant wait!

That's a rare one!!
Via Simon R.
Is that a three wheeler a boat or an UFO?
Do the paddles on the tall wheel hinge out for propulsion in the water?
It's a 5 wheeler!!
There does seem to be mechanism in those "paddle wheels".
Be interesting to see more of that thing. There's a lot going on that you can't really see.
I found more information
Definitely thinking outside of the box.
Ah, French; who would have guessed.
Good eye Tom!
Austin Seven or American Bantam ?
1927 YRSAN P.H. pic ...
like an electric Bedelia;
I suspect that is a Bantam frame. Here is an Austin 7 frame.
And a Black BSA and a silver Sandford.
Thanks Fred. I like the cross members.
love the Yrsan
how does one pronounce it?
We need a French speaker to tell us. Isn't there one of those translation apps that has a voice speaking the word(s) correctly?
Looks like American Austin to me. The Bantams I have seen have semi elliptic rear springs. The chassis in the photo is missing its cross members, but does have spring mounting bolt holes for quarter elliptic rear springs that look very similar to those on my UK built Avatar Austin Seven. The upswept rear part of the chassis is the same shape as the 1934 and up UK built chassis, but on the UK car it is a rivetted on extension rather than part of the chassis rail "proper" as in the photo.
Separate names with a comma.
