Great to hear that superb Buckland B3 three-wheeler is scheduled for a comeback in 2020.

Originally created by electronics control engineer Dick Buckland the beautiful little device was out of production for many years until John Wilcox of the Penguin Speed Shop based in Flintshire acquired the project and revised it to make it available in kit form, something that Dick had never done.

Newport-based Buckland (he lived very close to the Llanwern steelworks) was inspired by the Morgan F-Type of the thirties and along with assistance from his friend and first customer, Laurie Weeks. The car first broke cover in 1985 and Dick would build twelve of the originals.

Wilcox’s first Series 2 appeared in 2011 and it was just a peach of a thing.

It was recently announced that Buckland owners and three-wheeler enthusiasts Danny Hodgson, Tony Pearson and John Scruton had taken over the project and although have understandably been hindered by Boris’ lockdown they plan to continue on building the first example of the Series 3 version.

With the build continuing they are undecided as yet whether it will remain available in kit form or just as a fully built vehicle as before and other things under consideration are possible new engine options. Although the Ford Kent Crossflow 1300 is a perfect little engine for a B3, they don’t exactly grow on trees these days!
