There's a proper list of papers in order by cars here:

http://www.racb.com/fileadmin/default/R ... _Model.pdf

So you can use this list to easily find paperwork

Reliant entries are:

60 - GT Reliant Sabre 1703 - 03.05.1962
107 - GT Reliant Sabre Six 2553 - 09.05.1963
1610 - 2 Reliant Scimitar GTE 2994 - 01.03.1971
1683 - 2 Reliant Kitten Saloon 848 - 01.11.1976

Edit, just saw toolmanchris found a list too and beat me to it :oops: :D

The reason is there isn't one :cry:
However since it is always not what you know but who you know I have managed to get this info.

Excellent find Geoff, that's what I've been searching for too :D

Rather interestingly it states chassis number 6, however the pictures they show are surely a later SE5 model? Scimitar letters on the nose cone, side body trims, 3 spoke steering wheel and horizontal fuel cap :roll:

I must get out more!! :w

Does look like they used a current (1970) model when they took the pics, not chassis number 6.

Also noticed the interior shot is yet another car, judging by the window sticker/ tax disc location on the windscreen.

PS you missed the gas struts on the rear hatch Dave...

Must get out more too :D

What does homologation for group 2 actually mean then? Are there current regs/classes that you could build a car to compete in?

Depending on where you look, group 2 allows quite a few mechanical and suspension mods within the original appearance / facade, with wide wheels and bubble arches.

The Kitten FIA papers are presumably to allow the Kitten to run in the montecarlo.
