Description Reliant Regal Supervan 3, Delboy Van, Del Boy Trotter Van, III, OFAH, VERY RARE!

Please also see my other items 'Delboy-van-man' is having a huge clear out! Currently selling 4 of these very rare and desirable vehicles!!
A very rare opportunity to acquire an even rarer vehicle! This is a genuine Reliant Regal Supervan III, or otherwise known as a Delboy Trotter Van!
As you can see from the pictures, this is for full restoration.
This is the '21E' model of the Reliant Supervan - top of the range when new!
The body work and paint are both quite rough - but being fibreglass these vehicles are very easy (and cheap!) to rub down, repair and restore.
The original 700cc engine and gear box have previously been removed - but I will include for free a replacement 850cc engine gearbox (untested). These fit straight in and unless you are going for an original restoration, are arguably much better than the original. This is due to the increased power, synchromesh gearbox and spares being more readily available.
Apart from the windscreen, it looks like all the other main bits and pieces remain. The wiring loom is also still in place.
The vehicle does roll freely on its wheels.
The chassis looks to be fairly solid, there are signs of previous repairs - very normal for these vehicles.
This was last mot'd and on the road as recent as 2009. It is currently SORN'd, but tax is free anyway due to it being classed as a historic vehicle.
V5 is present and in my name at my address. Showing only 2 previous keepers!
VIN plate is present and correct, with numbers all matching the V5.
Mileage is showing at 29,754, but obviously I cant verify this.
Although last on the road in 2009, it has just been taken out of long term storage and therefore must be considered as a full restoration project. Viewing is recommended, so you know exactly what you are getting and the condition of the vehicle.
Most importantly, this is a genuine van and not a 'car' with the side windows filled in!
If you're looking that this advert then I guess you know what you're looking at!  I am more than happy for any prospective buyers view the vehicle if they are at all unsure what they getting - in fact it is encouraged.
Please remember that this is to be considered a full restoration project.
Likewise, I know a bit about these vehicles and am happy to advise the lucky purchaser whilst they carry out the restoration. I also have absolutely loads of spares for these vehicles and again would be happy to assist the purchaser with very favourable rates for any bits they might want/require
This is for collection only - I might be able to assist with delivery if it is very local to me, but this must be agreed by me before any sale. Alternatively I am happy for you to arrange collection if you need it delivering anywhere in the country or indeed the world!
For delivery I can highly recommend TR Recovery (Google them for website / contact details etc, based in Luton but cover the entire UK) I have used these many times to collect / deliver vehicles all over the country. Robert is very reliable, he is used to transporting 3 wheelers and his rates are very good.
Cash on collection only, unless otherwise agreed - or cleared funds prior to vehicle being collected/delivered.
How often does an opportunity like this come up?
This is a fantastic little project for someone - parts easily available/cheap and they are simple to work on. With these vehicles now commanding circa £8k when restored and their values constantly increasing, this is also a great investment!
Any questions, please feel free to ask or call me on 07834 813290.
