The chassis was fabricated from square steel tubing and the front suspension was initially from the Austin A35. The body was a one-piece moulding. Although usually supplied in kit form, the body was provided fully trimmed and painted leaving the purchaser to only complete the mechanical items. Later versions came with a B-series 1500 or 1600 cc MGA or 1800 cc MGB engine and coil-sprung BMC rear axle. With the coming of the larger engine, the car was renamed the GT1800. This GT1800 is from the final year of production.

The orange tram beyond is 761. This was built in 1935 and was originally a streamlined 'balloon' tram that was withdrawn in 1978 and converted ('vandalised' you night say...) to one-man-operation with end doors.

Despite being built in the 1980s, they were equipped with 1930s English Electric motors for reliability, but with more modern thyristor control (resulting in some comedy whining from the electrics on the day we rode it...)
