1975 RELIANT ROBIN SuperVan


Thanks for visiting our listing for an often hilariously tortured piece of British motoring history. You've seen Reliants on Top Gear. Mr. Bean and Fools and Horses on the BBC but they are nearly impossible to find in the US.


Yes. you may have seen this Reliant Robin at Car Week in Monterey. We had a blast meeting so many nice people.  We had this car in the paddock at the Monterey Historic races serving as a shuttle along with our Reliant Regal to the delight of tons of racers and race fans.


We attended the Little Car Show in Pacific Grove. a sold out affair in its sixth year. and WON! “Most Smiles per Mile” along with a member award.  We're told this is their version of Best in Show.  Wow. what an honor.


We also attended the Concours d'LeMons.  We had a great time and lots of people got to meet. sit in and get photos with the Reliants.  It's the opposite of a real concours where the truly awful are the winners.  Thankfully we were not called to the podium.


Rarity

This is a very early 1975 model Robin SuperVan.  This is not a converted Royal Mail vehicle. It is Right Hand Drive.


Clear Title

This Robin has a clear and clean California title and registration.  The current California motorcycle license plate is included.


Low Mileage

Less than 75. 00 miles accumulated in the last 40 years.  An average of less than 1900 miles per year. this Robin has been babied.


High optioned

748 cc 4 cylinder engine

4 Speed manual transmission operates smoothly.  

Rear folding seat

Bluetooth Handsfree audio system

Original Owners Manual


Top Gear Memorabilia including the Reliant Robin Rocket

Hot Wheels Popa Wheelie die cast model

Disney Car Eyes

Complete Build Book with receipts. photos and memorabilia.


Appreciating

Micro cars are the new collector car to have. They are fun. attention getting crowd pleasers that are always welcome at car shows and always draw a crowd.



Dale reviewed this Reliant Robin in detail.  Here are his impressions of the car and the market:


Today we are checking out a very cool 1975 Reliant Robin SuperVan.  This rare car has an enthusiastic worldwide following due in part to all of the attention on the BBC shows like Top Gear and Mr. Bean.


Were not sure how many of these panel van models were produced but reportedly very few outside of the Royal Mail fleet.  Equipped with the desirable folding rear seat. this van can go from light deliveries to comfortably carrying 4. 5 people. Where else can 4 1/2 people. ride a motorcycle. in the rain. without a helmet. at 60 MPH. while getting 70 MPG. and not get wet? Answer - In a Reliant Robin of course!


Most collector cars are impractical to utilize as daily drivers. however. the Reliant remains in service throughout England and India.  Many of these cars have over 200. 00 thousand miles on them. as their owners found them reliable. economical. sporty. unique. practical … and most of all. fun to drive.  


This example shows very. very low mileage on the odometer. at just 74600 miles.  


A complete restoration was begun in 2014 and completed 2015.


This car features the factory Red paint.  The fiberglass body was completely stripped. repaired and resprayed.  After a month of curing. the car was color sanded and polished to a high lustre.  She rides on factory steel wheels. hubcaps and new tyres.  


The interior is in superb shape.  Fresh seating. carpeting and wall covering abound. A bluetooth radio is a nice touch for handsfree phone calls. RIGHT HAND DRIVE!  Factory floor shifter.  Original gauges in place.  Trim is excellent.   Fresh tune and oil change by local British shop.  


This car runs. drives and stops exactly like it is supposed to do. Everything works the way it was intended by the manufacturer.


The Build book is complete with many pictures along the way. a photo disc. period adverts. receipts. the owner's manual and lots of history.


If you follow the collector car market. you know micro cars are on the rise.  They are easy to own. store. insure and resell.


Note: This Robin has not been shot into space or tipped by Top Gear or anyone else. Read the wiki below if you believe Jeremy Clarkson was really able to tip a Robin on Top Gear. Spoiler Alert. it was …. for TV!
