LIKE a duck, it takes to water. The ideal vehicle for dodging traffic jams; you simply turn to the canals and rivers. German-built, it is powered by a Triumph Herald 1,147 c.c. engine with special 4-speed all-synchromesh gearbox. For motoring on water, drive is transmitted via two propellor shafts housed in tunnels one each side of the engine to two three-bladed nylon propellers. Four-cyl; o.h.v.; 1,147 c.c.; 38 b.h.p.; whl. base 7ft.
