Looks like it was made in two halves and stuck together with a trim piece all the way around. I worked in a boat factory when I was a teenager and we made pedal boats exactly the same way.

I looked it up and yes there was a three wheel model and then later a four wheel model.

Doesn't look like a three wheeler.  Maybe a narrow rear axle, but the tire doesn't look like it's in the middle of the car.

Plethora gets the prize ... It's a 1957 Victoria (hence the post around Victoria Day). 250cc one cylinder motorcycle engine. The Victoria Motorcycle Company (Germany) decided to try the micro-car market and built less than 800 of them in '57 and '58. The transmission has push-buttons on the dash for forward/neutral/reverse, then a lever and clutch for 2nd, 3rd and 4th The one pictured is not mine (nor is it the one in the link below). It showed up at a local Cars and Coffee. The owner ALSO has a 60's Mini.

 The car appears to be a Brutsch,  Spatz (sparrow) or Victoria.  200 or 250cc.  Their one seat cars are interesting as well, a handle on the back of the tiny 3 wheeler is used to lift the car and turn it around, i.e. Mopetta.
