A boxed Meccano Motor Car Constructor outfit No.2 allowed owners to build more impressive clockwork motorcars than they could with the No.1 set.

No.1 vs No.2

The "Number Two" cars were larger and much grander-looking and more imposing than their No.1 counterparts, and could also be fitted with electric lighting.

However, the upscaling meant that the two sets of components were incompatible. This was not a huge issue, given that the cars built with the two sets were self-contained, that owners were unlikely to want to try to build six-wheeler cars.
