The Regal Mk VI was the last of the Regals in this range and was the last to feature Reliant’s 747cc side-valve engine. Manufactured from November 1960 the Mk VI like its predecessor used an ash frame to reinforce the fibreglass body . This Mk VI featured a much deeper windscreen and again used sliding windows at the side. The rear of the saloon model now had cluster lights that combined both indicator and running lights in one unit. The roof of the saloon model also overhung the rear window in the same way as the Ford Anglia did. Internally the dashboard instruments were now all condensed into one large speedometer at the centre of the dashboard which resulted in even larger glove compartments either side of the dashboard. The amber indicators had vanished and were now incorporated into the running lights below the main headlights. The Mk VI was also able to be started with the ignition key rather than press a starter button.
The saloon version was replaced by a totally new design of Regal, the Regal 3/25, in October 1962 whilst the Mk VI van became the Mk VI-A and was powered by the Regal 3/25's new 600cc OHV engine until it was replaced in 1963 by a Regal 3/25 van . The Mk VI was possibly the last new car in the world to be sold with a side-valve engine
