1983 Reliant Robin. In 1973 Reliant introduced the Reliant Robin, which was available as a saloon or an estate. These first Robins were produced until 1975 when the Robin received more minor changes and a larger 850cc engine with a SU carburettor. The Reliant Motor Company was formed in 1935 when TL Williams built the first prototype vehicle in his garden at Kettlebrook, Tamworth. He was a former works manager at Raleigh, and he left the company to build his own 3-wheeler. The 1990’s were a turbulent time for the company, with the receivers being called in. After an announcement on the 26th September 2000, Reliant ceased making 3-wheelers in February 2001. 1983 Reliant Robin.
