I wonder why the car is advertised 1982 - in the register chassis no.99 is listed 02/80... :?:

According to DVLA, date of first registration is May 1982 and Year of manufacture is 1982?

It's a Reliant - build date and registration date can be weeks, months or even years apart.

Could it have been originally first registered overseas? DVLA records have such a wonderful degree of accuracy :W

Reliant built a hundred or so pre launch, it took a while to sell them as the economy was buggered.

Yes, indeed - I only had time to type the obvious answer to the question, to be more exact you'd need to know the date code from the VIN, given that a large number of GTCs were run-off very quickly (much faster than they sold) it could well have been built earlier, then hung around in a dealer's premises unregistered, until, when it was sold it was "declared new at first registration" and registered at that date. Judging by Dave's problems getting the date changed on his SS1, the 1982 date is probably fairly representative of when it's going to qualify for things like tax exemption, if that's a factor in your buyin g decision?
