1977 NODDY CAR based on a Reliant Kitten
Something a little different…this is a car for fun, as part of a collection or a promotional vehicle or could turn into a business.
This incredible car is built on a 1977 Reliant Kitten DL 2 door saloon which was converted to Noddys car by retired engineer – 85yr old Geoffrey Hearn. The adorable little car is only being sold due to him and his wife getting a little older – so we are fortunate to have this opportunity.
Noddy is a fictional character created by English children's author Enid Blyton, originally published between 1949 and 1963. Television shows based on the character have been on TV since 1955 and continue to appear to this day. Ms Blyton wrote 24 Noddy books and this year is the 60th year celebration. Noddy’s role was that of a self-employed taxi driver around his little town!
This is one of the most accurate spot-on replicas of Noddy’s car – many have tried – few have been this successful! Noddy’s car is capable of 80mph and returns excellent mpg. The car has covered a mere 350 miles since the conversion and it runs very well indeed. It has an 848cc engine with a manual gearbox The private reg number SHL660S comes with the car.
The history folder includes: current and previous V5’s, current (no advisories) and previous MoT’s and related paperwork, 2 Noddy music discs, folders, gov/DVLA paperwork, newspaper articles about the owners and this car, write-ups on the owner, photo images of the conversion and restoration of the car (76 images), diagrams for wiring, suspension, brakes, chassis, engine and gearbox and of course, many writes ups on Noddy and his car.
Noddys car is in excellent condition throughout, is on the button and would drive anywhere!
Included in the sale is a life-size doll of Noddy and adult size full costumes of both Noddy and Big ears plus various small pieces of Noddy memorabilia.
This lovable little car is a complete head-turner wherever it goes and creates more attention than a Lamborghini –but as Noddy would say - watch out for Mr Plod! £12995
