I am helping a friend work on his sidecar but I can't find any info on it. He says it is a 1968 or 1969 united sidecar CO.

Let's hope I can upload a pic.

From just a front view I can not say for sure. It could be a Swallow or there was a company selling a body similar to this called a "Universal" they only sold the bodies for the DYI type.

I'm no expert but it looks like a Swallow from the front but that means it could also have been made by one of the companies that splashed the Swallow. That would include the International. The difference between the Swallow and the International was the fender. The International had a fender that was attached to the sidecar body. Some Internationals had a huge vertical fin on the back that was reminiscent of the Dreyer. Just based on the fender, I'd go with Swallow. BTW, I never heard of the United Sidecar Company, anybody else?

I've only seen one Swallow in person, but the one I saw didn't have those two "dimples" on top. Is this blue one modified that way, or was the one I saw modified?

I was wrong. He says it is a national sidecar.
