Produced by the Peel Engineering company on the Isle of Man in 1965 to 1966. The Trident was second car built by the Peel Engineering companyand used the same chassis design as the P50 but with a slightly larger futuristic 2-seater body shell or an optional shopping basket in place of the passenger seat - this allowed a 16 year old learner driver to drive alone.

The Peel Engineering company advertised their cars as "almost cheaper than walking" getting 100 miles per imperial gallon (2.8 L/100 km)
