Lot 1970

Description:

1948 Reliant Regent Goods Tricycle
Reg. no. YZ 7531
Chassis no. HA14929
Engine no. HA14929
Although many view Reliant as just ever having produced the ubiquitous Robin, their origins go back to the golden age of motoring in the mid 1930s. When Raleigh decided to stop making their three-wheeled vehicles in 1934, their works manager and a colleague decided to build their own version which was powered by a 750cc V-twin engine, which was essentially a motorcycle fitted with a box body. The Regent was a slightly modified version that appeared after the war, with a 10cwt capacity and better equipment. Although manufactured in 1948, this example was not registered until 1952, so it was used around the factory for its early years. From 1952 to 1962 it was owned and used by Ellis Bakers of Ringwood but for the following 20 years it was relegated to a hedge! Restoration followed and the vehicle was then used for shows and events. It is offered in good overall condition with a V5c and a selection of bills.
