My father owned one of these in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He made a small trailer for it and made deliveries with it for hire (moonlighting from his regular job). He did not own a car until shortly before we emigrated to the USA in 1964. It was our sole source of family transportation until then. I vaguely recall standing on the floor between my dads arms, mom on pillion holding baby brother. Sad to say, I have no photos of it.
