1949 Reliant 3 wheeler

Reliant 'Prince Regent'

Built in 1949 Index - FO 5654

Reliant took over Raleigh's design for three wheeled vehicles in 1935. This vehicle was found in a dismantled state in a collapsed garage in Wales. The restoration was started in 2005 and took two years to complete. The engine was rebuilt and is derived from an Austin 7. The bodywork was almost non existent but sufficient survived to be used as templates for new aluminium panels.

This fine example was restored by the late John Dagnall of Sittingbourne, Kent.
