1966 Peel Trident

The Peel Engineering Company’s Trident produced little power and a lot of noise. Built on a tiny island between England and Ireland, the three-wheeled Trident stretched only 4 feet 2 inches in length. The interior included two seats covered in a large plastic dome, under which passengers would cook on sunny days. The pull-start Trident never caught on as a popular way to get around, and only 45 were ever assembled.

  1. puny little spaceship!

  2. It looks like a car the Jetsons would have.

  3. i can’t believe they chose this over the peel p50! for those of you who don’t know, the peel p50 is the smallest car to ever go into mass production. it’s even smaller than the trident you see now and can’t go into reverse, so you have to get out and pull backwards whenever you have to. google the peel p50 to see what it actually looks like

    If it made less noise, had more power, the dome roof had a normal covering, it had good millage, four wheels, was slightly bigger had a back seat with enough room to carry a couple bags with four people in it, there is a chance this car would be slightly cool… and even then it would have to be at a good price to get the attention of people.

    What’s the point in owning a Peel Trident? It could make you peel.
