Reliant Regal

On Display

Possibly the nation's most famous three-wheel vehicle, this Regal van (mistakenly referred to as a Robin) featured in the BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses. It was the sole transport for the Trotter family of Del, Rodney, Grandad and Uncle Albert until Del Boy later went upmarket and purchased a Capri Ghia. What a plonker!

105,824 Regal vans and saloon cars were produced by Reliant between 1963 and 1972. The bodywork was of all glass fibre unit construction. With a maximum loading capacity of 50 cubic feet, one example was driven in 1968 around Mallory Park racing circuit with sixteen people crammed in the back! Cushtie!
