Reliant Regal Mk VI

Mk VI 1960 - 1962 / Mk VI-A 1962 - 1963

Introduced in November 1960 the Regal Mk VI was possibly the last new car in the world to be sold with a side valve engine.  It was also Reliant’s last vehicle to be sold with a coach built body featuring a hardwood frame and fibreglass panels.

The Mk VI was very similar to the previous Mk V though there were distinct changes.  The windscreen was much deeper and inside the dashboard now featured a large speedometer positioned in the centre of the dashboard.  Whilst the van retained the individual rear lights, on the Mk VI saloon, a combined light cluster was introduced taken straight from the BMC Mini. The saloon also featured extra headroom at the back with a roof that bulged over the rear window. In 1961 a Reliant Regal Mk VI saloon purchased new cost 447 8s 5d and the 5cwt van cost 348 10s 0d

The Regal Mk VI saloon was replaced by the radically different Regal 3/25 in October 1962.  At the same time the Mk VI van became the MK VI-A van and was powered by the new 598cc OHV engine until a Regal 3/25 van was produced in May 1963.
