Is this an icon?

The Invacar

The various types of Invalid Carriage produced in England from the immediate pre-war era to the late 1970s should be an icon because of their instantly recognisable sight in any street scene or round the nets of football matches of the time. The familiar pale blue three-wheeled cars provided much needed mobility to disabled people in postwar Britain, and their role must never be forgotten. Though the government scrapped most of the 21,000 it had on lease to people, a limited number of around 200 survive in museums or private hands.
