Looks like a Trotter mobile from Reliant. O0
I was studying at the Birmingham Business School, UCE and was seconded to The Reliant when it went broke for the last time, it was really weird, one day the factory was buzzing with about 80 employees, the next day I went in and there was only me and a couple of managers finishing off some cars, I reckon you could have got a Scimitar sportscar dirt cheap if you'd put an offer in to the liquidator.
I once had a lift in a Reliant Van - unbelievable noisy and rough ride.

P.S. No connection between me being there and them going broke - at least I don't think there was!.

I have just come across this.
Bournbrook is an industrial and residential district in southwest Birmingham, England, in both the Selly Oak Council Ward and the Parliamentary District of Selly Oak. Prior to what is commonly termed the Greater Birmingham Act, which came into effect on 9 November 1911, the Bourn Brook watercourse was the North Eastern boundary of Worcestershire, and the area was locally governed by the King’s Norton and Northfield Urban District Council. The Ariel Motorcycle factory was situated in Seeley Road.
