My Cars

 

Welcome to my Web site! Which I am proud to announce has been dedicated to Berkeley cars.

The site has been produced by Colin Pears a Berkeley enthusiast since 1988.  If you would like to contact me about Berkeley's, then please send me an email to: berk@pearsy.co.uk

Berkeley's are 3 and 4 wheeled fibreglass cars, that were produced between October 1956 and December 1960. I personally have fully restored two T60s, the three wheelers, and worked on many more. Presently I own three Berkeley cars and in order of purchase they are:

  1. A T60 Hardtop which is a two seat three wheeler, which was my first ever Berkeley and my first restoration. I bought this car in 1988 and it was finished in 1990.

  2. A T60/4 Soft top, which is a four seat three wheeler (yes a four seater!) which is now fully restored (December 07)

  3. An extremely rare Foursome four seat four wheeler.

 
   

 


Well here I am with my first Berkeley and still my favourite Frankie (from the registration number). This was just after finishing an 18 hour 500 mile rally with my mate Ian Hulme in 1995.

The rally was the annual RAC / ACU rally that runs around the central part of the UK. It started at 14:00hrs on the Saturday and we finished at 10:00hrs on the Sunday.

We were really tired, but the car went well. The exhaust did break but it was on a stretch near home and a mate with a welder was available to carry out a quick repair.

You may be pleased to know that me and Ian were one of the few to get the coveted Gold award on the rally.
