This is a low reserve auction. This is a Reliant Regal Supervan III (and not the Reliant Robin that it is often confused with) that was used during the filming of one of Britain's most loved comedies, Only Fools and Horses.
Although three-wheeled Reliants have long been a popular target for British comedy, featuring in Mr Bean, Top Gear, and Only Fools and Horses to name just three, the vehicles were built entirely seriously and used extensively in Britain in the 1950s, 1960s, and
So, a little about my Reliant Regal Supervan III and by the way, is an excellent opportunity to acquire a rare vehicle! It has been very well maintained and has had a complete restoration with electronic ignition, brand new carb fuels lines brake lines. Everything but everything has been overhauled and is a real head turner with admiring glances from everyone as it just makes people smile.This is a genuine vehicle and should not to be confused with the usual rubbish. It has been fully restored and a lot of time and money has been spent. Tax and mot exempt as it is a1956 vehicle and is classed as an historic vehicle and both V5 and keys present. This is the real deal, it has a faux patina and made to look 'authentic' but it is very far from the normal worn and tired examples commonly found for sale. It is in the correct shade of Daytona yellow, with some subtle dirty effects added for authenticity - it really looks spot on.It is mechanically A1 as is the bodywork and interior and it runs excellent and handles just as it should.This van and is ready to use, especially suited for the extroverted/fun type of person and/or can be used as a business venture for weddings, birthdays or other special occasions as it is ideal for those of us who want something more of a novelty themed event.I would welcome would be buyers to inspect the vehicle as this is a serious vehicle and is becoming increasingly rare and presents an opportunity for someone to invest in as both a business as well as to use and enjoy.Now the serious bits…Please, no scammers, or third party sellers.
