Tour 1

Reproduced with permission from The Reliant Archives at

This tour was conducted on the 8th April 1993 at Reliant’s Two Gates site in Tamworth by Elvis Payne.

Elvis was told that during this week Reliant made approximately twenty five Robins (three of which were left hand vehicles bound for Austria) and three Scimitars. On the production line it took 15 man hours for a single vehicle to pass from one end to the other. Production of the Robin was all on one site at Tamworth though the Rialto was made elsewhere.

On the tour Elvis took a number of photographs and made a few notes. These pictures can never be taken again as with Reliant moving to Burntwood in 1999 (and then Cannock in 2000) the whole of the Tamworth plant shown in these pictures has been raised to the ground and a new housing estate has been built there.
