1939 Moto-Scoot Moto-Kar Deluxe

After producing the top-selling Moto-Scoot scooter, Chicago-based entrepreneur
Norman Siegal began manufacturing the small, threewheeled “Moto-Kar” in the late
1930s. The Moto-Kar had three-wheel independent suspension and an engine
positioned behind the leather-upholstered seat. This Moto-Kar, the only 21⁄2-horsepower
deluxe model known to survive, retains its original “fat man” steering wheel that pivots
away for ease of entry. Readily adaptable to fill a variety of needs, Moto-Kars could be
equipped with cargo bodies for light deliveries, pontoons for fun on the water, and
heavy steel bumpers for racing.
