This 3 wheeled Berkeley T60 Roadster was a sporting microcar with a 328cc transverse twin, two stroke air-cooled engine and front wheel drive. Produced by Berkeley Cars Ltd of Biggleswade, England, the cost in 1960 was about £400.
This was Berkeley's only three-wheeler model and production started in 1959. In the UK, three-wheelers can be legally driven on a motorbike licence. Another advantage was that road tax was considerably cheaper for three-wheeled vehicles.
Three wheeled vehicles were quite common in the 1960's. Two wheels at the front and one at the rear produces a much more stable road handling, safer cornering and better braking.
