350cc.  Here's a facespace page on the Patrol Car and a meter maid version.  Just google "Royal Enfield Service Car" for 201,000 links.

PS  The suggestion to Google wasn't a nasty.  Sometimes it's just a good way to find info.  :)

Ha ha.  Glad it helped.  Last week I searched for something for an hour and my niece came in, rolled her eyes at me, typed in two words and found bazillions in 10 seconds.  And I have a MCSE certificate.  :-[

I'm not sure how far they go back but Pashley-Enfield 3-wheeler Patrol Cars were sold under the Indian Sales Corp here is the USA beginning in 1958 or so. Prior to that they were sold by Royal Enfield dealers. Many were sold to municipalities for tending to parking meter patrol. They competed with Harley Davidson 45 three wheeled Servi-Cars. I've got a parts book for the 1959 model Pashley-Enfield. They made one with a pickup type box called the model S/F and the regular small box type was the H/D.
