This is a handsome model, available in a variety of colours and well finished. Opening doors and dicky seat, plus a separate trunk, are nice touches.

The dash is not totally convincing: yes, the actual thing was pretty minimalist, but there's not one gauge in the centre moulding. On the other hand, good interior touches include separate brake and gear levers and a detailed steering wheel incorporating the mixture control lever.
From the front, his is a handsome model: its imposing radiator is nicely finished, and the headlamps look as if they could be lit.

Perhaps a few chrome details are a little heavily done, just edging on the borders of being tacky, but attractive, nonetheless.
