Welcome to , This site aims to provide both the history of Reliant and its vehicles along with a number of items from Elvis Payne’s Reliant Archive. The Archive has been built up over the last 20 years and now contains well over 1,000 items including photos, plans, brochures, factory documents, and early handbooks.  It also includes a few more unusual items like Reliant Founder Tom Williams’ personal set of wood chisels and the original bronze Reliant sign from the old Reliant building.

Reliant Brochures Catalog

Number of brochures currently listed: 244

Our aim is to build up a complete catalog of every Reliant brochure produced from 1935 onwards.  Elvis Payne’s collection of 160+ Reliant Brochures forms the basis of this catalog though can you provide scans of brochures that are missing? We are especially keen to fill the missing gaps for any brochures produces in the late 1930s and 1940s.
