Alternative Coupé register ;-)

Here's a list of Scimitar GT magazine articles I have so far Dave are there any colour pictures of AUE38B in its early days , just wondered if it was always brown ? Not the best colour for a prototype car that you want to show off. Hi, Sadly I don't have any colour photos of AUE 38B from the early ...

Who was Adrian Ball? I'm not certain of his official title, but I think he was effectively Reliant's publicity man / graphic designer for much of the key period. Many of the brochures, Owners' handbooks, etc., say something like "Designed by Adrian Ball & Associates" on them. Yes, Roger is correct,...

Here's another one, and it could even be another BRE, but I think it is HRE 409F. This was apparently another press car, photo from 1968. Can anybody add details ? That photo is definately HRE 409F, It features in "Speedworld International" magazine dated May 11th 1968. It's a 2.5 litre Scimitar on...

Did this ever get made?

I've mentioned before I've an article on this from one of the car magazines of the time. According to this it wasn't finished nor roadworthy. The article is illustrated by pictures of the car in red. Again according to the article William Towns persuaded Reliant to supply him a 1800ti, but they had...

Did this ever get made?

Here's the SS2 concept car at the motorshow in 1988

Underneath it was an 1800Ti SS1 chassis

I was told it ended up going to the USA for evaluation.

1974 Dealers list

This is the original dealer sticker from MB14. Silverdale seem to be difficult to find information on. I think they went out of business in the early 1990's but had been trading since at least the 1960's See HERE . Interested to see if anyone has a Silverdale advert. Here's an advert from 1970. I'v...

1974 Dealers list

I'm slowly compiling a list of Reliant Sabre/Scimitar Dealers through the years.

I've started collecting old dealer adverts from old car magazines, Dealer paperwork, dealer stickers, dealer tax disks and dealer stickers etc. 8)

Do you have any more pics of 70 & 76? I’d say there’s nothing in those two pics to say they’re the same car with any small degree of certainty. I think it's the same car which belongs to Andy Flowerdew. I remember seeing the first photos of it when it was virtually buried in rubbish before he rescu...

No Jim, that's another car altogether, this one really was a Reliant prototype. If that's he red coupe HOO 465B then it's not a prototype. I was thought to be, but again it was another one with a modified front nose cone. It's actually a Rover P6 front nose panel, which is metal... There's a Rover ...

Mike McCartney (aka Mike McGear) owned a couple of Scimitar. I was sent this newspaper clip, but sadly with no other details and I can't see the reg plate, although I'm wondering if this was: Mike told me: "Dear Dave, Charlie Leek from Argyle Motors, Bhead found my 1st khaki, black interior Scimitar...
