The Learner's Car has a red body and black running boards. It also has wooden seats, black tyres, and a transferred L on the radiator.
According to Peter Bartok's "THE MINIC BOOK" the model was deliberately designed to skid when on a polished surface, done by setting the back wheels out of original line and making the back tyres out of tin-plate, as a single piece with the wheels, instead of making them out of rubber.
When the car was wound up, it would then drive very erratically, as if the driver couldn't control the car.
