The earlier "Simplicity" had a brazed steel chassis with moulded fibreglass body, the "Simplicity II" featured a cast aluminium chassis and body.
Fitted with a 4QD controller and single Fracmo 12 volt electric motor, with drive by steel gears to the rear axle, thence by coupling rods to the front.
Rolls along freely; mechanically ok, cosmetically it's a nightmare! That said, a straightforward restoration project - overhauled and repainted there's the potential to make a decent example of this attractive, all-metal design.
