1977 Reliant Kitten DL "Batmobile" 38,532 (Not Warranted) £5800 + buyers premium


This car was first registered on 08-12-1977 as a Reliant Kitten DL. It was acquired by the Bournemouth Carnival Band on 08-05-1989 and given a makeover during the year by Elford Motors of Tuckton Bournemouth to become the Batmobile. Olds motors of Dorchester refurbished the bodywork (and partially overhauled it) in the late 1990’s. Apart from one or two changes through wear and tear the engine is a Reliant original. In August 2013 the head was skimmed and new head set fitted along with a full service. In 2014 the Bournemouth gearbox centre built a brand new box and a new clutch was installed during reassembly. Extensive repairs and replacements(mostly minor) have been carried out of the past few years including a new exhaust, radiator and various steering parts, as the invoices in the file show. The vehicle has had very little use since its acquisition and has been garaged and declared off the road on many occasions, mainly due to unavailability of drivers.

Auctioneers notes: MOT’s and invoices show that this car has covered a fraction over 1000 miles since 1993 and it is very likely that the odometer reading of 38,532 is correct, however it cannot be warranted as there is no history prior to that.
