Page 8. Three-Wheel Vans & Pick-ups

By the Late fifties, most manufacturers had developed closed-cab variants of the earlier open 3-wheel delivery trucks. Some, like Britian’s Reliant Girder-Fork Van, had started production pre-war. With strong competition from 4-wheel light vans after the war, 3-wheeled commercial vehicles were not popular in Great Britain (though British Railway vehicles were, of course, 3-wheeled variants).

1931 Karrier 2-3 ton Colt and Cob:

This shows a range of 3-wheeled lorries used by the railways. They are not really ‘triporteurs’ as such, but it’s worth noting their existence as a 3-wheel commercial variation.

3-Wheeler Gouldcar:
The Gouldcar is an interesting innovation, being a complete cab and pick-up unit you could fit over your Harley or Indian trike.
