Pete Farries did indeed build the 'Whomobile'.155bcef419dfd73586a4ff9ca4900a68.jpgbase was of 3 wheels and the windscreen was from a boat...Pete worked with Jon Pertwee on designs.

(Pertwee collecting it from Pete.)

It ended up being  used on the BBC series.

If my memory is correct..it featured on Blue Peter kids show..check YouTube??
