Peel P50 and Peel Trident For Sale (1964)For sale a pair of original 60’s Isle of Man Peels – whilst being extremely rare no real introduction is needed since Jeremy Clarkson featured a P50 on Top Gear some years ago.
Given in recent times the value of a genuine Peel, much skulduggery and fakery has reared its ugly head. These Peels however are correct and to original specification (but to show throughout. Both retain their original registration numbers on the V5 showing just one previous owner for each car. Both have their original Viking works Peel bodyshells, suspension/engine framework, alloy Peel Engineering chassis plates and their original Zweirad Union 3 speed 804 series 4.2ps 2 stroke motors with correct 1/17/44 Bing carb and air filter. The ‘64 P50 is a London car sold out of the famous Two Strokes of Stanmore in North London. The ’66 Trident is a Hull car sold by the long defunct Browns of Witham.
Importantly detail wise they both retain their original alloy number plates, the Browns dealer plaque is still affixed to the Trident rear plate, Wipac lights, LEP 6v wiper motors, Lucas 8h horn, Avon Kart tyres, Stadium rear lights, SIEM multi switch and factory wiring looms. The P50 retains its original seat pad in excellent condition. Both have perfect DARE plastic grips for their controls. The Trident is fitted with a pair of optional in period NOS hubcaps and spinners.
The inbuilt fuel tank in the P50’s tub is sound and serviceable however due to aggressive modern fuels a 2nd auxiliary tank has been fitted which hangs off the O/S sliding window runner. The Trident had a new tank at its restoration thus entirely circumventing this problem. Should you wish to and are mad enough, both Peels are functional and can be driven on the Queen’s (or President’s) highway. I have driven both on the road and they do make for a rather unforgettable experience. Not for shrinking violets.
A very rare opportunity to acquire two genuine investment grade blue chip 60’s magical Peels with unquestionable provenance.
