Falcon

The Falcon LX3.  (My thanks to Tony Johnson for this photo)

Falcon

Description

The Falcon LX3 was first built in 1986 by Peter Bird of Falcon Design (GB) and was available as a kit or as a set of plans.  The vehicle was a Lotus look alike and used the floorpan of a Citroen 2CV along with its 602cc engine. The suspension is also 2CV  with stubs of both rear swinging arms joined by a beam with one arm repositioned on it to place the wheel in the centre. Unlike the Lomax, it retains the original heater.  The body tub is plywood with a GRP bonnet, wings and boot. A number of Falcon’s have stainless steel or aluminium panels attached over the plywood.  It is believed that around 200 vehicles were built.
