1971 PROTOTYPE 850cc Roadster NOT Kit Car Replica For Sale

This is a very early 1960's built prototype open topped roadster. It was hand built to the highest standard by a professor of mechanics with a fully hand beaten aluminium body. Despite intending to create more, this prototype was the only one made and accordingly this vehicle is the only one in the world. She was named the Rebel Roadster 700. Since production she has been registerred as a Rebel Roadster in her own right and used as a fully functional road vehicle. This is your opportunity to own a unique vintage open topped tourer Rebel Roadster built to the highest standard.

Mechanical Specification
Initially this prototype used an overhauled 701cc Reliant engine, however this was later replaced in favour of an overhauled 850cc Reliant engine which is currently fitted. Both engines are included in the sale. All other mechanical specification can be found in the Chartered Institute of Road Transport Engineers Report dated 1982 and included at photographs 10 and 11. All parts were overhauled or new. She weighed 490 kilos (with the 700cc engine fitted).

Attending to the history to date. She was registerred as a Reliant Rebel 700 Sports in her own right in 1971. The earliest MOT we have shows she had completed 11530 miles by 1984. Since this date she has generally been kept in dry storage. She has been regularly MOT’d, however has covered but 12,908 miles in total during her life.

Mechanically she starts first time and sounds absolutely beautiful. I am told she is amazing to drive. She last entered dry storage five years ago and has done but a handful of miles since the last MOT. Some light recommissioning may be required.

She comes with both engines, a tonneau cover and two windscreens, the second being larger.
