The Reliant Motor Company (Nostalgia Road)

The Reliant Motor Company, established in 1934 and destined to outlast almost every one of its competitors at the time by staying in business for 66 years, is nevertheless perhaps the most underrated car manufacturer in the world.

As a relatively small British motor company positioned on the ancient A5 road where it passes through Tamworth in the English midlands, Reliant initially brought family motoring to the masses with its range of three-wheeler cars and it is maybe still best known for the 'Robin' three wheeler.

The complete story of Reliant is much more than a single model however, and in particular the 1970s Scimitar GTE was emulated by almost every other car manufacturer whilst the Scimitar itself became the choice of royalty and celebrities alike.
Reliant was also a great innovator, a company that achieved many world firsts and exported vehicles all over the world. Indeed, it was Reliant that created a complete car industry for Israel and Turkey.

From early prototypes through Reliant 7cwt to Reliant, Regal, Regent, Kitten, Sabra Sport and of course the Scimitar to the less well known known Scooter Ski, Ant and countless 'one-offs' and projects, The Reliant Motor Company uncovers the full story of the company and its cars which have developed a cult following amongst car owners, enthusiasts and ex-employees alike.

The Reliant Robin : Britain's Most Bizarre Car

Spanning four decades, the Reliant Robin was a familiar, if eccentric, fixture on Britain's roads; an object of amusement to those who didn't understand its ultra-thrifty ways and a source of pride to the many thousands of owners who did.

During a time of deep recession in 1970s Britain, this stylish little car from Tamworth became a massive hit, boasting low fuel consumption and cheap tax. Reliant couldn't make them fast enough, until a culture of more sophisticated car buyers saw it go into eventual decline.

From its beginnings in 1973 to its demise almost thirty years later, Giles Chapman traces the colourful history of the most famous and iconic three-wheeled car in Britain.

Reliant Sports Cars

The Reliant Scimitar is one of the most successful and distinctive British sports cars. In almost 20 years, from 1968 to 1986, over 15,000 of these elegant machines were produced, and today the car is still highly regarded for its timeless looks and effective design. Don Pither's pictorial history of the Scimitar and its predecessor, the Sabre, shows in detail their conception, development and career, and it celebrates their enduring qualities.

This book is essential reading for Scimitar owners and enthusiasts, and provides a keen insight for readers who are fascinated by the history of British sports cars. The author recalls how, after 25 years of producing three-wheeled vehicles, Reliant experimented with the production of a four-wheeled sports car, the Sabre, in 1961. The company was so encouraged by the sales potential of this nimble Ford-engined two-seater, which they went on to produce the more ambitious Scimitar coupe of 1964.

This innovative car, which carried a stylish Ogle-designed body, was developed into the most famous and most powerful Scimitar of all, the 3-litre GTE sporting estate of 1968. This car sold consistently well throughout the 1970s because of its good looks, practicality and rapid performance. It also gained for the company a valuable royal endorsement as Scimitars were owned by the Duke of Edinburgh and Princess Anne.
The car was seen as a classic of its time.

Reliant Scimitar GTE - SE5, SE6, SE8 (1968-1986), Middlebridge (1989-1990)

Finding a classic car that has prestige and performance can be hard, and few would expect a marque more famous for its three-wheelers to be included in such company. Yet few cars meet these criteria better than the Reliant Scimitar Grand Turismo Estate. When the GTE arrived on the scene in September 1968, it heralded the world's first sporting estate car.

The GTE sprang from the Scimitar range of sports cars, with production spanning 22 years. With a body shape designed by Ogle's Tom Karen, and mounted onto a new, longer wheelbase chassis designed by John Crosthwaite, and constructed of non-rusting fibreglass, the sport estate hatchback body, with it's waistline rising towards the rear, was an automotive first.
The original GTE SE5 was powered by a sporty 3.0-litre Ford Essex V6 engine, and with over 4000 cars produced, it was an instant success. The model went on to receive a number of updates and improvements during its life, with the SE5A model of 1972 outselling all other models.

This The Essential Buyer's Guide covers all Scimitar GTE models produced between 1968 and 1986, including SE5/SE5a, SE6/SE6a, SE6b, GTC/SE8b, and the Middlebridge Scimitar GTE produced between 1989 and 1990. Don't buy a Reliant Scimitar without this book!
