The Lomax Motor Company was a kit car manufacturer out of the U.K. that produced this, the 224, which is actually based on the French Citroen 2CV. The first Lomaxes went on sale in 1982. Apparently you can still get one. This one is called a “1977” because that’s the year of the 2CV it is based around.

The 224 (two cylinders, two seats, four wheels) carries over the 602cc flat-twin from the Citroen, and it was rated at 35 horsepower. There were also 223 (three-wheeled) and 424 (four-cylinder) models.

This one has been parked for a decade and has remained with the family of the person who completed the build. It will sell at no reserve, and you can find out more about it here.
