If anyone is struggling with insurance, you could try Adrian Flux, (http://www.adrianflux.co.uk) who insure kit-cars and one-off specials at very reasonable rates in my opinion.

No promises, but it's worth a try!

Hi folks,

My Dad had a V reg Reliant Ant. I really thought it was brill. My brother drove it at 16 with a provisional license. Don't think you're suppose to. Well folks, I would like to own one, so if there are any lying about the country, you could send me some photos, and if the price is right I would take it off your hands.

In 2004 I bought an Ant pickup tipper from England, it is in a very good condition, has only made 13,000 miles. It gets a lot of attention as it is the only one in Sweden. It is registered as a motorbike.

Hi there,

I am very interested in buying a Reliant Ant to totally restore to its former glory, have you any information on any Ant going at a sensible price? Any information will be very useful. I've got all the tools to restore this vehicle, from shotblasting, spraypainting, welding and lots of time to do it. I am willing to help fellow enthusiast to restore their own vehicles, if any one needs help drop me a line.

I have managed to get it back on the road, but it's in need of a rear axle as mine has lots of play in it, and anything connected to making my Ant back to its true glory.

Hi, I'm desperately looking for a restoration project. You said some time ago that you may know of an Ant or 2 that may be for sale. Do you still know if there is one available to buy?

Many Thanks,

Hi, would anyone know where I can buy parts for my Reliant Ant? I need a needle roller bearing that fits into the spline in the gearbox.

Hutson Motor Company in Bradford used to be main builders for the Ant, and holds lots of new parts.
