You’ve seen Reliants on Top Gear, r. Bean and Fools and Horses on the BBC but they are nearly impossible to find in the US.

Micro cars are the new collector car to have. They are fun, ttention getting crowd pleasers that are always welcome at car shows and always draw a crowd.
Dale reviewed this Reliant Robin in detail. Here are his impressions of the car and the market:
Today we are checking out a very cool 1975 Reliant Robin SuperVan. This rare car has an enthusiastic worldwide following due in part to all of the attention on the BBC shows like Top Gear and Mr. Bean.
Were not sure how many of these panel van models were produced but reportedly very few outside of the Royal Mail fleet. Equipped with the desirable folding rear seat, his van can go from light deliveries to comfortably carrying 5 people. Where else can 5 people, ide a motorcycle, n the rain, ithout a helmet, t 70 MPH, hile getting 70 MPG, nd not get wet?
Most collector cars are impractical to utilize as daily drivers, owever, he Reliant remains in service throughout England and India. Many of these cars have over 200,000 thousand miles on them, s their owners found them reliable, conomical, porty, nique, ractical and most of all, un to drive.
This example shows very, ery low mileage on the odometer, t just 74515 miles.
A complete restoration was begun in 2014 and completed this year.
This car features the factory Red paint. The fiberglass body was completely stripped, epaired and resprayed. After a month of curing, he car was color sanded and polished to a high lustre. She rides on factory steel wheels, ub caps and new tires.
The interior is in superb shape. Fresh seating and carpeting and wall covering abound. A bluetooth radio is a nice touch for handsfree phone calls. RIGHT HAND DRIVE! Factory floor shifter. Original gauges in place. Trim is excellent. Fresh tune and oil change by local British shop.
This car runs, rives and stops exactly like it is supposed to do. Everything works the way it was intended by the manufacturer.
The Build book is complete with many pictures along the way, photo disc, eriod adverts, eceipts, he owner’s manual and lots of history.
If you follow the collector car market, ou know micro cars are on the rise. They are easy to own, tore, nsure and resell.
Note: This Robin has not been shot into space or tipped by Top Gear or anyone else. Read the wiki below if you believe Jeremy Clarkson was really able to tip a Robin on Top Gear. Spoiler alert, t was rigged for TV!
