Messerschmitt Roadster collectors card

This is trawling the depths of nerdery. A card given away with Ewbanks of Pontefract liquorices. It reads...

"The 'Roadster' offspring of another famous firm, is the three-wheeled version. It has an air-cooled 191cc engine fitted in the rear, capable of 65 m.p.h. Seats two and one child (small) tandemwise."

You would think that they were trying to sell microcars rather than scooters, 65mph!! two adults and one child!! Did they ever set eyes on one of these devices?

Messerschmitt convertable gum card.
