Believed to be one of the half-a-dozen Reliants used in the 80s sitcom, the Reliant Regal Supervan III featured alongside David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst in the popular show.
Capable of reaching a top speed of 55mph, this particular van has seen light use by its present owner for six years. Prior to going on sale as part of Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro Live Online Auction on 27 March, the van has been given new tyres as well as having its brake system overhauled. The van’s fuel system has also been checked.
As well as its all-important fluffy dice, the vehicle features a ‘tax in the post’ sign for the windscreen and an inflatable doll in the back, as seen in the ‘Danger UXD’ episode.
In addition, the van comes with BBC-headed paper stating that this particular Reliant was one of the original vehicles used within the 22 years that the show was in production.
Gary Dunne, sales controller for Silverstone Auctions, said: ‘This is one of half a dozen original cars that featured over two decades of Only Fools and Horses, and the second in which Silverstone Auctions have had the honour of selling.
‘Going under the hammer in our first sale of 2021, this will certainly be one of the star cars; a great opportunity to own a slice of British comedy history.’
