Peel Viking Sport- 1966


Most people associate Peel Engineering with the building of fiberglass bike fairings and microcars. Peel also made a couple of different car models based on then-current production cars’ running gear. The car seen here is a Peel Viking, which is one of only seven left known to exist. Peel actually never produced the whole car; they would sell the fiberglass body and the buyer had to find a junked Mini to take the drivetrain and brakes from. Many other parts were borrowed straight from the Mini such as the steering wheel, doors and windows. Although it was a nice-looking and practical car, it did not sell and production hardly got started before it stopped.
