OK, this RARE car was taken at the Stamford Classic and Custom Car Show after the rain (obviously) lol
It has only ever turned up once, and I've been to this show a few times..

B.S.A Cars never named their cars which does NOT help here! Models were also made in 3-wheel AND standard 4-wheeler versions!
3-Wheelers were made in two eras.. The twenties and in the mid 1930's.. This, looks like a 30's model, but if you know better correct me..

BSA cars were manufactured between 1907 and 1912 in Birmingham then until 1939 in Coventry as well as Birmingham, England. BSA had established a motor-car department in an unsuccessful effort to make use of the Sparkbrook Birmingham factory. An independent part of the same site was occupied by The Lanchester Motor Company Limited. Sales were handled by BSA Cycles Limited, after 1912 manufacture was carried out by group subsidiary Daimler in Coventry or BSA Cycles in Birmingham..

Hope you like
Enjoy... Mike? Here you go, look out for this one! lol

What an amazing little car Rob, I've never had the pleasure of seeing one before.

Quite a classic, Rob, on a very wet day too!

This must have an armoured chassis, surely it would have been wiser to attach the third wheel to one of the corners.....I have visions of this dragging its arse down the street in a shower of sparks....LoL :-)
Yeh ok!...I've seen one of these before, great shot of a true classy classic, not showroom condition, it looks like it could actually have been driven there...which is a bonus, I love seeing cars like this on the road, being driven and not towed on a trailer behind a 2012 Range Rover.....

Whoa!!! Just look at this little beauty.

You know I love micro cars and these 3 wheelers Rob. BSA (and Morgan) did it the sensible way by putting two wheels at the front.
The front wheel drive models were made from around 1929 to 1936 so as you say this is probably a 30's car.

Thanks so much for this mate, it made my day and is my new desktop image :)

Pardon me for laughing, but LOL! This has got to be some kind of joke, right?. Shades of the Keystone Kops! When are they going to finish the rear end?
Oh well, enough of that folderol. Great POV, clarity, color and detail, which are typical of your vehicle and aeroplane photos, in this stellar capture, Rob. Good tread on those tyres, and beautiful green grass again.
BTW, I think I have a three wheeler in my files somewhere, but it's nowhere as unique as this.

A cracker Rob...having frequented the classic bike know that BSA stands for Best Sh*t Available ;O)

Looked around a bit on this one Rob...found a 1934 model that looks just like this...rather plain grill, flat windscreen, etc. Apparently there was some tax advantage to having a three wheeled car versus a four wheeled car...until 1936 when BSA ceased production on three wheelers.

Neat find and a fascinating old car.

Thats very different but i think i prefer the four wheels much safer.

A great shot of this curious vehicle, Rob, Couldn't make up its mind whether to be a car or motorcycle...

We found a cool automobile museum out here in the middle of nowhere - I'll post some photos soon..

3 Wheelers were very popular before and after the war years... not everybody could afford a full size car, and in England you could get away with a trike as it was classed as a motorcycle, so you could get a car (sort of) and run it on a motorcycle license, with motorcycle insurance... both of which were waaay cheaper...
very cool capture!
