The focal point of the body, the grille, was that used by BMC on their badge-engineered Riley Elf version of the Mini, a lucky find in a local scrap yard for the princely sum of 50 pence.
Wheels came from an Italian Garelli moped, but the tyres on that vehicle were too fat. French Hutchinson tyres of a thinner section proved ideal, their 2.75 width being exactly half the real size 5.50.
Bodywork was aluminium, stretched over an electric conduit tube frame, and the local bolt-on goody shop provided a steering wheel of correct diameter - they could not sell it to the full size Mini enthusiasts - not enough leverage !
