Fuck me the yanks had omegas! Dreamy!!!! 

When I was looking for unobtainable rear brake pins for the MV6 my nephew checked out the local Cadillac dealer in Cincinnati to see if they could get the same GM part number.  They could but I eventually found some on EBay UK.  New old stock.  Which was quicker.

Are those the pins that hold the inbound shoes to the backing plate?

No. They hold the pads into the caliper. 2 in each caliper.

On the 3.2 the caliper is wider due to the vented rear disc, and Aftermarket suppliers send you the shorter version, but label it with the part number you need. Bastards. 

Did a lot of "I know you think you have the right part but perhaps you could measure it before I order it......what's that you say? Oh it turns out the label doesn't match the part and it's going to be too short"

I believe it's Reliant Robin running gear, with an old speedboat body which has been turned into a trike.

Andy Saunders did a road legal speed boat with Reliant gear about 20 ,maybe more, years ago. He's worth interwebbling to see some of the stuff he's done. The 2cv he did is very odd.
