Only 3,052 Regal Mk VI (5 cwt) vans were produced between November 1961 and October 1962. (The van continued to be made from October 1962 - May 1963 with the new 600cc OHV engine and became the Mk VI-A, 500 of these were built).
It is claimed that the Regal Mk VI is possibly the last “new” car that could be purchased with a side-valve engine. It was also the last Reliant to feature a wooden floor and a wooden frame inside the vehicle with the body attached to it and also the last Reliant to have a mascot attached to the top of the bonnet.
If you own a Mk VI van or know of one (dead or alive) that still exist, please let me know so that I can see how many of them are actually left.
