The Reliant Story (Exports) 1967
This was a lost BBC film I found in 1992 from a series about Exports. It
was transposed off 18mm film into VHS by the BBC who then kept a copy for
Portraying the british vehicle maker Reliant and their best known model
Off to a new home!
Finally after moving house I have space in the garage at home to move Lucie
(A 1961 Reliant Regal Mk VI) into and hand back the keys to the council for
the garage. I shall now be able to take her for a spin without wondering if
someone has parked infront of the garage when I get there and end up
knocking on dorrs to see who it is. As she was cold the choke was out hence
the fast tick over and the back is still full of gardening tools rolling
around which are the thuds and clatters you hear.

An amazing one owner Reliant Rialto Hatch SE with documented history and
just 11,183 miles from new.

passenger mirror, rear seat belts, quartz clock, ammeter gauge, water

This unique Reliant was ordered in Parchment, (Beige), and still looks
incredible with a new low mileage shine. All the decals and vehicle
badging are correct and present. The N/S/F coach line has been scuffed
very slightly and out of sight paint flake is present in a one inch square
section due to stone chip. The vehicle is still fitted with the Main
Dealer number plates and rear window sticker. Dealer branding extends to
the tax disc holder and key fob!
The interior of this outstanding Reliant Rialto is in fabulous factory
original condition finished in Grey crushed velour trim with red piping.
All the controls, gauges and switches function perfectly. The vehicle has
been fitted with colour coded tailor made floor mats to protect the carpets
and all the trim remains as new. The white 'choke' inscription has faded
and a small '2p' size circular stain is barely visible on the dash where an
air freshener was stuck. The front window still has the tyre pressure
sticker present. With folding rear seats allowing 30cu.ft, (849 litres)
this little car is versatile putting much larger vehicles to shame!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This superb car is in perfect mechanical order having covered such few
miles and been fully maintained. The 848cc aluminium water cooled engine
produces 40bhp and accelerates rapidly due to the overall weight of the car
only being 794kg! The four speed gearbox is tight, precise and offers a
short shift movement which is truly addictive and immense fun!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Correct wheels with undamaged factory fitted grey wheel trims. Goodyear
G800+S 145 SR10 fitted to all three wheels and decent tread. The
hydraulically operated brakes need firm pressure which is normal with three
