This 1980s Clan Clover was built in Northern Ireland. In 1982, Clan Cars Ltd was started in Newtownards by Peter McCandless, taking advantage of government development grants for the area. The car was sold in three levels of kit form (basic, deluxe and complete). It is believed that six kits were sold prior to the production of approximately twenty- one fully built cars. Clan Cars Ltd went into receivership and ceased trading in June 1987.
