Could I suggest that giving some information as to what it is that you want data on might make it possible to answer this question?

I am afraid I do not understand the requirement to the extent as to if it is question about eBay, something on eBay, or a Reliant, or even a Reliant that has been shortened, or a short eBay advert for a Reliant Shorty saying its a Microcar because some of it is missing. Now more folk will be interested in knowing what the answer is. I know I am.

 This is the car Gary means. A couple of days ago the listing stated not to put any bids on as the "seller" was only advertising it to try & find out infomation on it. Then yesterday the listing changed to the car actully really being for sale...

Arrrrggghhhhh! Its dat dere fing dere.

This was previously advertised by my bud Graham Walker, or his lad. I recall discourse in its Fulda shape etc. on a previous topic thread. No idea if any genuine type information come forward during that, probable, slagging off of the strange and unusual. Well its traditional, especially if Reliant is mentioned in conjunction with modified for some reason. Pity the did not make an I.C. 'innit..............

Its shortened to the maximum ...

but not to the minimum.
Cut it down some more and I think you will find greatly increased interest in your car.

Gary, I did publicise your car on the British teardrop trailer forum the previous time it was for sale, as it seems such a perfect match for a teardrop.  I did put it on the big American forum but then quite a few of them have nightmares when they see a three-wheeler....

Wasn't this advertised as a college project a while ago? Asking the original seller which college modified could be a starting point.
