Frame no. 5R 1355
Engine no. 852681
Part of the Raleigh group, Phillips enjoyed a brief presence in the moped market during the early 1960s. The firm's first products, powered by Rex and Villiers engines, were introduced in 1959 under the 'Gadabout' and Panda' model names, which continued after production switched to Raleigh's own built-under-licence Motobécanes at the end of 1962. This Rex-engined Gadabout De Luxe has the three-speed gearbox with twist-grip gearchange. Last taxed to April 1972, the machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.
