Reliant Regal Supervan 3, Delboy Van, Del Boy Trotter Van, III, OFAH, VERY RARE! for sale
Reliant Regal Supervan
A very rare opportunity to acquire an even rarer vehicle! This is a genuine Reliant Regal Supervan. or otherwise known as a Delboy Trotter Van!
This is a very original and unmolested example. that benefits from having a full body off restoration only a couple of years ago.
It is MOT'd until 21/06/2017 and is therefore ready to use and enjoy straight away!
The bodywork is in excellent condition. with the Post Office red paint really setting it off.
Likewise the chassis and fuel tank are spot on.
The tyres are literally brand new. the even still have the little bobbles on them!
The interior is very tidy and benefits from a new carpet.
It does have the original rear seats (currently folded down and under the carpet). but sadly as is all to common the cushions are missing - although can be easily replaced.
If you're looking that this advert then I guess you know what you're looking at! I am more than happy for any prospective buyers view the vehicle if they are at all unsure what they getting - in fact it is encouraged.
When do you ever see a very original. running. MOT'd Supervan in this condition and with only 41k miles?!
This has to be the perfect vehicle for any serious enthusiast or collector!
The other obvious route. is to convert it into a Delboy Van (Only Fools and Horses. Trotter Van etc) replica! This is exactly what we were intending to do (and still might!). but to be honest I'm not sure I have the heart to do this to such an original and quality example - it would be nice to see it left as is. That being said. most people want these as a Delboy Van!
I therefore thought it best to offer it as it is. giving the new owner the option to have either a very original example. or create their own replica. After all it is a very easy conversion - simply paint it yellow!
It does benefit from the rare rear windows. which I know for a Delboy replica isn't necessarily what you want (although most people just paint straight over the glass!). I will therefore offer the lucky buyer first refusal on a pair of original fibreglass panels (cut from a supervan that was broken for spares. see last picture) that can be easily re-instated in place of the windows. if so required.
I am only selling as I need the space (plus I don't really have the heart to do a Delboy conversion to such a nice example!) and I am downsizing my collection - far too many projects on the go at once! That being said. nbsp;I am not desperate to sell. With their value increasing year on year. I am just as happy to hold on to it (if I can arrange more space!) and do the Delboy conversion at a later date.
With Delboy replicas now commanding circa £8k and the values constantly increasing. this is a great little investment for someone!
The keys are present. as are the V5 and MOT.
This is for collection only - I might be able to assist with delivery if it is very local to me. but this must be agreed by me before any sale. Alternatively I am happy for you to arrange collection if you need it delivering anywhere in the country or indeed the world!
For delivery I can highly recommend Sabro Logistics. I have used them many times to collect / deliver vehicles all over the country. Robert (Tel. 07447 277277) is very reliable. he is used to transporting 3 wheelers and his rates are very good.
Cash on collection only. unless otherwise agreed - or cleared funds prior to vehicle being collected/delivered.
How often does an opportunity like this come up?!
Any questions. please feel free to ask or call me on 07834 813290.
