Reliant - Reliant Sabre

Reliants first 4 seater car was a project for 1960 for another company, who built a prototype using a Leslie Ballamy chassis fitted with Ford 1703 engine with a sporty glass fibre body built in house. 100 or so of these Sabra cars were supplied to customers, while building a few right hand drive examples for the British market for which they changed the name to Sabre, to differentiate it.  For 1961 the Reliant Sabre 4 continued the use of the four cylinder Ford Consul engine in various states of tune, and for 1962 the Sabre 6 was added using the six cylinder 2.5 litre Ford Zodiac engine. The Sabre 6 carried on in production until 1965 with various bodywork changes around the front end.

The Reliant Sabre 4 was originally fitted with tyre size 155R15 and the Sabre 6 was originally fitted with the slightly larger size 165R15 tyre. Blockley produce both these tyre sizes, with period correct steel belt constructin, high speed rated 155HR15 and a 165VR15 tyres - see full details below:
