Welcome to RELIANT, the Reliant website that is called just that ( and is the official web site for the Reliant Motor Club.  The RMC is a new club for the Reliant owner and enthusiast that offers members not only the usual benefits of club memberships but also access to the largest on-line Reliant archive in the world.  The club was founded in June 2016 by Reliant enthusiast Elvis Payne and Mark Cropper whose combined personal archives contain well over 2,000 items including photographs, plans, brochures, factory documents, press releases, Reliant newspapers and handbooks.  Due to storage space the archives mainly consist of paper based items though they do also include a few more unusual items such as Reliant Founder Tom Williams’ personal set of wood chisels and the original bronze Reliant sign from the old Reliant building in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

The Reliant Motor Company by Elvis Payne

Foreword by HRH The Princess Royal

The Reliant Motor Company is the first book on Reliant to cover Reliant’s complete history in a single volume.. Past books on Reliant have just covered specific areas whereas this book covers all Reliant models, the three-wheelers, the economy four-wheelers, the sports cars, the export models, prototypes and other projects. It also quashes some of the myths that have arisen, especially over the last 10 years or so, in which the history of Reliant has been skewed as some are taken to be actual facts. Read More

HRH The Princess Royal
