What were the differences between the German and the UK version that makes this worthy "Made for GB" while most other cars don't?

Any better view of the green one? It's not a Ford Anglia - I think probably Turner Mk1 or Mk2 - http://www.historywebsite.co.uk/Museum/Transport/Cars/TurnerSports.htm .

@dsl: How about a Fairthorpe Electron Minor like http://www.connecticutclassix.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/photo-3.jpg ?

Firstly it was 'made in GB' rather than for as it was built by a British firm (called simply Isetta) under licence; and IIRC British Isettas were invariably three-wheelers for tax reasons.

Possible. I looked at them for pics but did not find one with a bumper. Turner is my best guess, but open to other ideas.

Bumper looks a bit home-made to me. I think the shape of the grille is characteristic of the early Electron Minor (and completely different from the Turner A30/A35).

@chris40:
Yes a three wheeler makes it different. I can agree with that.
Much more 'hands on' than additional indicators as is usually the case.

OK - I'm convinced. Vote now for giving it a page (especially as it seems to be the world's only example with a bumper).

I'm for it, even if it is part hidden; and if I had invested time and money on an Electron Minor and proposed to use it in (presumably) London I'd put a bumper on it.
